Enzymes in a Cage Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT; Germany; www.kit.edu) have embedded enzymes into metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), and demonstrated for the first time that stabilization by these frameworks is sufficient for use of the enzymes in a continuous reactor. The enzymes are stabilized in both aqueous and organic solvents. Using an enzyme-MOF flow reactor, the researchers found that the stability of the immobilized enzyme was about 30 times that of the free enzyme, while the catalytic activity reached about 30% of that of a free enzyme. The study was reported in a recent issue of Angewandte Chemie.
