Pickering emulsion-enhanced interfacial biocatalysis: tailored alginate microparticles act as particulate emulsifier and enzyme carrier

Author affiliations

Abstract

A robust Pickering emulsion stabilized by lipase-immobilized alginate gel microparticles with a coating of silanized titania nanoparticles is developed for biphasic biocatalysis. The good recyclability and high stability of the proposed interfacial catalysis system have been verified, retaining about 90% of relative enzyme activity in 10 catalytic cycles with operation for 240 h. Meanwhile the Pickering emulsions remain stable during a storage time of one year. The green system can be widely applied to construct powerful platforms for enzyme or microorganism-driven interfacial catalysis.
