Synthesis of pyridinium-based ionic liquids and their application to improve Candida rugosa lipase stability in a methanol-water solvent system
This paper studied the effect of pyridinium-based ionic liquids as cosolvents in a methanol-water solvent system on the hydrolytic activity of Candida rugosa lipase. These ionic liquids were successfully synthesized using imidazolium-based ionic liquid synthesizing methods with a certain adjustment. The hydrolytic activity of Candida rugosa lipase was analyzed using 4-nitrophenol acetate (pNPA) and 4-nitrophenol palmitate (pNPP) as substrates. The addition of ionic liquids had no significant effect on the hydrolytic activity of lipase in a water solvent, and it had a greater effect in methanol. The addition of [C6Py] Br ionic liquid as a methanol cosolvent (methanol: ionic liquid, 10:5) could increase the hydrolytic activity of lipase. The use of ionic liquid as a cosolvent could increase the hydrolytic activity of lipase by about 15.61% while using pNPP as a substrate in the methanol system. A molecular dynamics study for the interaction between lipase and ionic liquids supported the experimental results. The ionic liquid using bromide as an anion provided more stability on lipase conformation. It tends to form the short-range interaction between the lipase and bromide anion.
