Lipase from Candida rugosa (CRL) was adsorbed onto three calcined layered double hydroxide (CLDH): Mg/A1-NO3- (CMAN) and Zn/A1-NO3- (CZAN). Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (SEM-EDX) and protein staining light microscopy analyses were applied to provide direct spectroscopic and microscopic evidence for the adsorption of CRL onto CLDH. SEM-EDX spectra show CRL presence in CMAN-CRL, CNAN-CRL and CZAN-CRL prepared. Blue spots on the surface of CMAN-CRL,CNAN-CRL and CZAN-CRL stained with Coomasie Blue R confirm protein adsorption onto supports. The catalytic activity of all three CLDH-CRL was also evaluated in synthesis of methyl caprylate and results showed that CMAN-CRL and CNAN-CRL exhibited 70% conversion while CZAN-CRL exhibited 80% conversion compared to free lipase that exhibited only 6% conversion only.

Universiti Putra Malaysia Institutional Repository

Universiti Putra Malaysia Institutional Repository is an on-line digital archive that serves as a central collection and storage of scientific information and research at the Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Currently, the collections deposited in the IR consists of Master and PhD theses, Master and PhD Project Report, Journal Articles, Journal Bulletins, Conference Papers, UPM News, Newspaper Cuttings, Patents and Inaugural Lectures.

As the policy of the university does not permit users to view thesis in full text, access is only given to the first 24 pages only.
