    α-Chymotrypsin encapsulated in reversed micelles formulated with dioleyl phosphoric acid has been used as a nanostructural bioreactor for the hydrolysis of amine acid derivatives in aqueous media. The enzymatic activity entrapped in the reversed micelles remained at more than 90% activity for the successive one month owing to an insulating environment for the enzyme.
