Abstract

In this study, nanoporous carbon (NPC) derived from metal–organic framework was used as support for the immobilization of Burkholderia cepacia lipase. The decorated aluminum oxide within the mesoporous NPC improved the enzyme loading efficiency as well as the catalytic ability for the transesterification of soybean oil, thus making it a promising green and sustainable catalytic system for industrial application.
