Enzyme Immobilization and Applications of Magnetic Nanoparticles in Smart Enzyme Immobilization

Authors(5) :-Mimpal Singh, Nazish Ishfaq, Sehrish Salman, Muhammad Hassan Bashir, Bisma Ashfaq

Immobilized enzymes are more vigorous and more resistant to changes in the environment as compared to enzymes free in solution. For efficient enzyme consumption their properties are enhanced by immobilization in the industrial processes. Magnetic nanoparticles are highly appreciated due to their large surface to volume ratio, ease of separation and high surface area. Immobilization of enzymes onto the magnetic nano-carriers progressively established new catalytic system. Recent advances in the enzyme immobilization improvement and maintenance have been considered in this review. Modern applications based on immobilization of enzymes onto magnetic nanoparticle are also discussed in this review.
