Title
Fixed bed reactor performance of invertase immobilized on montmorillonite
Abstract

Invertase was immobilized on acid activated montmorillonite via two independent procedures, adsorption and covalent binding. The immobilized enzymes were characterized by XRD, NMR and N2 adsorption measurements and their activity was tested in a fixed bed reactor. XRD revealed that the enzyme was situated on the periphery of the clay and the side chains of different amino acid residues were involved in intercalation with the clay matrix. NMR demonstrated that tetrahedral Al was linked to the enzyme during adsorption and the octahedral Al was involved during covalent binding. Secondary interaction of the enzyme with Al was also observed. N2 adsorption studies showed that covalent binding of enzymes caused pore blockage since the highly polymeric species were located at the pore entrance. The fixed bed reactor proved to be efficient for the immobilized invertase. The optimum pH and pH stability improved upon immobilization. The kinetic parameters calculated also showed an enhanced efficiency of the immobilized systems. They could be used continuously for long period. Covalently bound invertase demonstrated greater operational stability.
