The alcoholysis catalyzed by the poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-lipase complex in ionic liquids was investigated. The alcoholysis between vinyl cinnamete and benzyl alcohol was catalyzed by lyophilized native lipase PS or the PEG-lipase PS complex in [Hmin][PF6]. The alcoholysis reaction involves acylation of the lipase and esterification of benzyl alcohol. The results show that the differences in activation among lipases was related to the solvent tolerance of the lipase or the dispersion of the PEG-lipase complexes.
