Summary An alkaline thermo-tolerant lipase from Bacillus coagulans MTCC-6375 was purified and efficiently immobilized onto a synthetic hydrophobic poly (MAc-co-DMA-cl-MBAm)-hydrogel at pH 8.5 and temperature 55°C in 16 h. The hydrogel bound matrix possessed 7.6 IU g -1 matrix lipase activity with a specific activity of 18 IU mg -1 protein. Immobilized lipase was used to catalyze the esterification of lauric acid and ethanol to produce ethyl laurate in n-nonane. The reaction conditions that were optimized to produce ethyl laurate in n-nonane included enzyme/substrate (E/S) ratio, substrate concentration, reaction time and reaction temperature. The optimized parameters were E/S ratio of 0.5 mg mM -1, ethanol:lauric acid in ratio of 100 mM:100 mM and reaction time of 15 h at 65°C under continuous shaking (200 rpm). Optimized conditions resulted in 66% conversion of reactants into ethyl laurate in n-nonane in the presence of 300 mg molecular sieve mL -1 reaction mixture.
