Polymeric Supports for Enzyme Immobilization by Alka Dwevedi Book PDF Summary
Enzyme immobilization has been approached for finding solutions for various critical problems associated with industries, medicine, environment, agriculture, etc. Especially since last decades, several innovative researches have come up to look for enhancing catalytic efficiency, reusability of immobilized enzyme and longer stability by introducing range of immobilizing supports, supports modifiers through introduction of several chemical agents (non-toxic) and adopting innovative enzyme immobilization methods. In the present book, polymeric supports have been focussed for enzyme immobilization, especially due to their versatility in immobilizing different enzymes for different large scale enzyme reactors to be used for several applications. Especially, polymers can be modified according to applications and enzyme properties which have made it supports of choice for all several enzyme based applications. Polymeric Supports for Enzyme Immobilization: Opportunities and Applications offers in-depth discussions of known polymeric enzyme support materials, reaction processes, and optimized methods to enhance enzyme immobilization. Case-based chapters examine methods of enzyme immobilization onto various polymeric supports, their surface chemistry and physical morphology followed by implementation of polymers based immobilized enzymes in various applications, viz. medicine, environment, industries, clean energy, disease diagnosis, drug delivery etc. This book has prime focus to allow several researchers across the world to provide updated technological details and incite to contribute more innovative work in coming years to find solutions to several critical problems. Offers an in-depth, case-driven discussion of known polymeric enzyme support materials, associated reaction processes, and methods to enhance enzyme immobilization Provides optimal strategies for various enzymes, processes, and applications, considering the enzyme itself, substrate, and available support properties Provides complete details on applications of polymeric based immobilized enzymes in various applications ranging from chemical; or pharmaceutical synthesis, food processing, bioremediation, industrial catalysis, etc.
