On the hunt for truly biocompatible ionic liquids for lipase-catalyzed reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

One of the challenges in the field of biocatalysis is the search for efficient reaction media avoiding enzyme deactivation. This work shows for the first time that water + hydrophilic ionic liquids mixtures enhance (up to 50%) the enzymatic activity of lipases, opening new opportunities for enzyme extraction and biocatalysis.
