Additional Information: Lipases (Triacyl glycerol hydrolases) catalyze the hydrolysis of ester linkages in lipids with release of fatty acids and alcohol. Microbial lipases are commercially significant especially in leather, dairy & oleochemical industries. This project discusses the temperature and rheological studies of microbial lipase solutions. A number of shake flask experiments conducted, confirmed the Bingham plastic behaviour of lipase solution. It was observed that lipases show loss in thermal stability below 350C temperature and maximum activity levels at 350C. With increase in temperature activity loss was observed. Shear inactivation of lipases was investigated at shear rates of 58.05 s-1, 97.02 s-1 and 161.64 s-1 which shows that lipases suffer minimum activity loss at lower shear rates and higher activity loss with increasing rate of shear and exposure time. Shear was applied on lipase solution in a viscometer (Haake VT500) and temperature effect without shear on lipase activity was observed using water bath.
