Summary

A novel type of organosoluble biocatalyst, representing a non-covalent complex of enzyme with a sugar-based amphiphilic polymer is described. The subtilisin Carlsbergpalmitoyl poly(sucrose acrylate) complex was found to be soluble and catalytically active in a number of organic solvents of different nature.
