    Abstract

    A novel preparation method for surfactant-coated enzymes has been developed using a W/O emulsion. The enzymatic activity of chymotrypsin in isooctane significantly increased with the coating of surfactants. The surfactant-coated chymotrypsin showed a high enzymatic activity for amidation, although powdered chymotrypsin did not show the activity. Further, the coated enzyme showed a remarkably high storage stability.
