Synthesis of sn-2 docosahexaenoyl monoacylglycerol by mild enzymatic transesterification of docosahexaenoic acid ethyl ester and glycerol in a solvent-free system
Cogent Food & Agriculture
The enzymatic transesterification of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) ethyl ester with glycerol was performed with several lipases in a solvent-free system and it involves the initial formation of sn-2 docosahexaenyl monoacylglyceride. This DHA derivative is highly relevant for improving the bioavailability of DHA and it has received increasing interest in the field of nutrition. Three commercial lipases, from Rhizomucor miehei (RML), Alcaligenes sp (QL), and Candida antarctica-fraction B (CALB) weredoi:10.1080/23311932.2016.1164569 fatcat:dwgyaksm7rdfde7kukqm54odmm
