Protein Immobilization in Metal-Organic Frameworks by Covalent Binding Academic Article uri icon


  • Metalorganic frameworks (MOFs), possessing a well defined system of pores, demonstrate extensive potential serving as a platform in biological catalysis. Successful immobilization of enzymes in a MOF system retains the enzymatic activity, renders the active site more accessible to the substrate, and promises recyclability for reuse, and solvent adaptability in a broad range of working conditions. This highlight describes enzyme immobilization on MOFs via covalent binding and its significance.
