Application

Lipases are used industrially for the resolution of chiral compounds and the transesterification production of biodiesel.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Candida rugosa lipase is known to catalyze hydrolysis reactions, especially the production of ricinoleic acid.
Lipases catalyze the hydrolysis of triacylglycerols into glycerol and free fatty acids.

Unit Definition

1 U corresponds to the amount of enzyme which liberates 1 μmol oleic acid per minute at pH 8.0 and 40 °C (triolein, Cat. No. 62314 as substrate)

Other Notes

A highly stereospecific catalyst suitable for preparative resolution of racemic acids and alcohols; Stereoselective ester synthesis; Benzyl-alkyl transesterification under mild neutral conditions; Enantioselectivity of some lipases: Review
