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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
