Abstract

The fabrication and enzymatic stability of two types of sustainable biocatalytic nanofinbers - enzyme-polymer composite nanofibers and enzyme-coated polymer nanofibers - are reviewed in this paper. These biocatalytic nanofibers, produced by coating enzymes on polymeric nanofibers, can make recycling and handling of enzymatic materials easy in bio-catalysis, bio-sensing, bio-remidiation applications. This paper also describes a simple way of dispersing hydrophobic biocatalytic nanofibers in aqueous solution.
