Abstract

Nanobiocatalysis, in which enzymes are incorporated into nanostructured materials, has emerged as a rapidly growing area. Nanostructures, including nanoporous media, nanofibers, carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles, have manifested great efficiency in the manipulation of the nanoscale environment of the enzyme and thus promise exciting advances in many areas of enzyme technology. This review will describe these recent developments in nanobiocatalysis and their potential applications in various fields, such as trypsin digestion in proteomic analysis, antifouling, and biofuel cells.
