Abstract: Abstract The kinetics of enzymatic hydrolysis of oleyl oleate in the boundary layer between stagnant organic and aqueous phases was studied using a commercial lipase preparation which was dissolved in the aqueous phase. Three aspects of the reaction were investigated. (1) The hydrolysis equilibrium in the organic phase cannot be expressed in terms of the concentrations of ester, alcohol and organic acid alone since the activity of the organic compounds changes dramatically with conversion, i.e. with the water…
