INTERFACIAL BIOCATALYSIS IN BACTERIA-STABILIZED PICKERING EMULSIONS FOR MICROBIAL TRANSFORMATION OF HYDROPHOBIC CHEMICALS

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – LONDON (UNITED KINGDOM), lun 08 febbraio 2021 Microbial transformation or degradation of hydrophobic substrates is usually hindered by their limited aqueous solubilities. Pickering interfacial catalysis in biphasic systems has recently been developed to enhance catalytic efficiency. Till now, catalytically active microorganisms are rarely exploited as Pickering emulsifiers. Here,......
