Abstract

The present investigation evaluates the efficiency of laccase binding onto the micro-emulsified magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). The synthesized MNPs were characterized for its nature, particle size and functional moieties using transmission electron microscopy Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction studies. It was found that the MNPs had a uniform and mean average diameter of 12.63?3.2 nm. The TEM analysis and XRD patterns also confirmed the presence of MNPs after laccase binding. The maximum activity of the immobilized laccase was obtained at its weight ratio of 19.55x10-3 mg bound laccase mg-1 MNPs. The stability and reusability analyses were also studied to evaluate the activity of the immobilized laccase with that of free laccase. Application of laccase immobilized MNPs were extended to degrade a reactive textile dye; reactive green 19A (RG19A).
