New approaches in non-aqueous enzymology for modification of lipids and phospholipids
Hayes, D. G.  2018.  American Oil Chemistsí Society Annual Meeting, Minneapolis, 6-9 May 2018.  (invited)

This lecture will review the fundamentals of conducting enzyme-catalyzed transformations in nonaqueous media, particularly, organic solvents, focusing upon the modification of lipids and phospholipids by lipases and phospholipases and newer developments. Topics to be covered include preparation of the enzyme and reaction medium, control of water activity, and guidelines for conducting the enzymatic reactions. Also, guidelines for the use of ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents as reaction media will be provided.
