Properties of Enzymes Solubilized in Hydrocarbons Via Reversed Micelles
Enzymes tend to denature rapidly in apolar media, and therefore their technical exploitation in solvents such as hydrocarbons, alkylethers or halogenated hydrocarbons, is suually impossible. Attempts have been made in two-phase systems (1), with the enzyme working at the interface, but only a very few examples have been described.
