Lipase immobilised on silica monoliths as continuous-flow microreactors for triglyceride transesterification (2017)
Journal Article
Alotaibi, M., Manayil, J. C., Greenway, G. M., Haswell, S. J., Kelly, S. M., Lee, A. F., …Kyriakou, G. (2017). Lipase immobilised on silica monoliths as continuous-flow microreactors for triglyceride transesterification. Reaction Chemistry and Engineering, 3(1), 68-74. https://doi.org/10.1039/c7re00162b

Lipase immobilised on silica monoliths has been prepared and applied as biocatalytic continuous-flow microreactors for the transesterification of tributyrin as a model bio-oil component. Candida antarctica lipase was trapped within the pores of silic... Read More

Enhanced antimicrobial effect of berberine in nanogel carriers with cationic surface functionality (2017)
Journal Article
Al-Awady, M. J., Fauchet, A., Greenway, G. M., & Paunov, V. N. (2017). Enhanced antimicrobial effect of berberine in nanogel carriers with cationic surface functionality. Journal of materials chemistry B, Materials for biology and medicine /, 5(38), 7885-7897. https://doi.org/10.1039/c7tb02262j

We report a strong enhancement in the antimicrobial action of berberine encapsulated into polyacrylic acid-based nanogels followed by further surface functionalisation with a cationic polyelectrolyte (PDAC). Due to the highly developed surface area,... Read More
