Mathematical modelling of esters synthesis catalyzed by Mucor javanicus lipase in non water environment
Languages of publication
A mathematical model describing esters synthesis catalysed by lipase from Mucor jawanicus was designed.This model was confirmed by the syntheses of propyl stearate, butyl stearate and oleyl stearate catalysed by M.javanicus lipase.Using this model it is possible to estimate the maximum achievable yield of ester synthesis.The model can also applied for performing simulation to evaluate the effect of particular elements on the yield of ester synthesis and, consequently, it could enable the optimum selection of particular elements of the reaction system.
