Paper Abstract

Study of an aqueous-phase reaction in an enzyme- catalyzedpolydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microreactor is underway. In the present work, urease - an enzyme that catalyzes urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide has been immobilized within open microchannels of 450 micrometers (micrometers ) in diameter or less. Microchannels are templated within PDMS. Preliminary results demonstrate the proof of concept for conversion biochemicals via a PDMS-based microreactor system.
