Water-in-ionic liquid microemulsions as a new medium for enzymatic reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The insolubility of enzymes in most ionic liquids has been overcome by the formation of aqueous microemulsion droplets in a hydrophobic ionic liquid stabilized by a layer of anionic surfactant sodium bis(2-ethyl-1-hexyl) sulfosuccinate (AOT) in the presence of 1-hexanol as a cosurfactant and the catalytic activity of one of the enzymes studied (lipase PS) became higher than in microemulsions of AOT in isooctane.
