Abstract

The lipase of Mucor javanicus (now M. circinelloides) entrapped in silica matrix by the sol-gel method esterified primary and secondary alcohols with conversions ranging from 30 to 35% and 10 to 15%, respectively. Loss in activity of the preparations after incubation at 100°C for 1 h with petroleum ether, dodecane, 1-heptanol or oleyl alcohol was about half of that observed for the native lipase.
