Immobilization of Enzymes on Porous Surfaces

Immobilization is a well-established means of improving the operational and storage stability of enzymes, and enabling separation and recovery for reuse while maintaining the activity of the enzyme. In this Chapter, enzyme immobilization on porous supportsis described. Different immobilization methods, the factors affecting immobilization and the applications of immobilized enzymes in biocatalysis, drug delivery and biosensors are discussed.
