USE OF MODIFIED SILICAS FOR LIPASE IMMOBILIZATION. Enzyme-support strategies are increasingly replacing conventional chemical methods in both laboratories and industries with attributes including efficiency, higher performance and multifarious use, where silica surfaces show potential due to the chemical bonds based on the presence of hydroxyl groups which can be modified with different additives. Surface-modified silica is a novel class of materials capable of improving enzyme stability and
