- ... Magnetic immobilization of enzymes became emerging method for efficient recovery of biocatalyst under magnetic field. Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) root starch is abundantly produced in tropical countries. Thus the present work was focused on immobilizing α-amylase on to magnetic nanoparticles and use as biocatalyst for hydrolysis of sweet potato starch into glucose. The hydrolysis of sweet potat ...
