An enzyme-encapsulated microreactor for efficient theanine synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A flow-type microreactor containing glutaminase–mesoporous silica composites with 10.6 nm pore diameter (TMPS10.6) was developed for the continuous synthesis of theanine, a unique amino acid. High enzymatic activity was exhibited by the local control of the reaction temperature.
