Remediation of Phenolic Compounds from Polluted Water by Immobilized Peroxidases

  • Qayyum Husain


In present chapter, an effort has been done to review the role of immobilized peroxidases in the removal of phenolic pollutants from wastewater or industrial effluents. Immobilized peroxidases were found significantly more stable against several kinds of denaturants such as the broad ranges of pH and temperatures, organic solvents, and other forms of chemical inactivators. These bound peroxidases were found highly resistant to inhibition caused by their specific inhibitors and products compared to their free forms. Peroxidases from several plant sources, horseradish, turnip, soybean seed coat, pointed gourd, and white radish, and some microbial sources have successfully been immobilized on/in various types of organic, inorganic, and nanosupports by using different methods and employed for the treatment of phenolic pollutants in batch processes and continuous reactors. The applications of immobilized peroxidases in targeting such compounds were found remarkably useful in decreasing the cost of the treatment. Herein, the findings have summarized that the immobilized peroxidases have a great potential in the remediation of phenolic pollutants from industrial wastewater.
