Brandenberger attached lipase to the isocyanato derivative of poly-p-aminostyrene in 1956 (1). This was the first time that lipase was immobilized to an insoluble carrier through covalent bond formation. Kitajima also entrapped the lipase in microcapsule (2). The present paper describes the preparation and some properties of lipase bound to polysaccharides following cyanogen bromide activation.
