Abstract:


MOFs are porous materials with adjustable porosity ensuing a tenable surface area and stability. MOFs consist of metal containing joint where organic ligands are linked with coordination bonding rendering a unique architecture favouring the diverse applications in attachment of enzymes, Chemical catalysis, Gases storage and separation, biomedicals. In the past few years immobilization of soluble enzymes on/in MOF has been the topic of interest for scientists working in diverse field. The activity of enzyme, reusability, storage, chemical and thermal stability, affinity with substrate can be greatly improved by immobilizing of enzyme on MOFs. Along with improvement in enzymes properties, the high loading of enzyme is also observed while using MOFs as immobilization support. In this review a detail study of immobilization on/in Metalorganic Frameworks (MOFs) have been described. Furthermore, strategies for the enzyme immobilization on MOFs and resulting in improved catalytic performance of immobilized enzymes have been reported.
