The water content of a water-immiscible can be controlled using reverse micelles. We applied this reverse micellar system to improve the enzymatic activity of a surfactant-manganese peroxidase complex in toluene. Increasing the water content in toluene to 2 vol% using the reverse micelles resulted in the great improvement (10-fold) of the peroxidase activity.
