Rational Design of New Bio-based Carriers for Advanced Enzyme Immobilization (RISE)
Enzyme immobilization plays a crucial role in enzyme technology with a multitude of applications in food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and biobased chemical industries. The research is focused on the preparation of highly functionalized biobased microspheres for the rational immobilization of enzymes. Aim is the optimization of enzyme activity while gaining a deeper understanding behind inactivation mechanisms. The heterogeneous biocatalysts will be tested in different reactor designs.
