Interests: enzyme engineering: purification, immobilization, stabilization, reactivation; hyperactivation; main enzymes: lipases, penicillin G acylase, endoxylanases, beta-xylosidases, etc.; enzyme processes: fine chemistry, food chemistry, analytical chemistry, green energy; enzyme reactors: stirred tanks, packed beds, etc.
Enzymes are able to catalyze the most complex chemical processes under the most benign experimental and environmental conditions. In this way, enzymes could be excellent catalysts for a much more sustainable chemical industry. For industrial applications, enzymes have to be immobilized, via simple and cost-effective protocols, in order to be re-used for very long periods of time. From this point of view, immobilization, simplicity and stabilization are strongly related concepts. The preparation of optimal and cost-effective enzyme biocatalyst is the main topic of this special issue.
This Special Issue is devoted to:
- The critical revision of simple protocols for immobilization-stabilization of enzymes
- The improvement of functional properties of enzymes via immobilization and post-immobilization techniques.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
