Abstract

One of the potentially interesting applications of the immobilized glucose oxidase/catalase enzyme system is the production of gluconic acid and fructose from corn starch syrup. For this process to be economical, the enzyme system has to have a high operational stability. Unfortunately one of the reaction products (hydrogen peroxide) deactivates both catalase and glucose oxidase. To avoid this problem, hydrogen peroxide produced by the reaction should be removed from the microenvironment of the enzymes. The purpose of this work is to investigate different means of achieving this goal.
