Abstract

<p align="justify">The esterification reaction between stearic acid and lactic acid using Rhizomucor miehei lipase and porcine pancreas lipase was optimized for maximum esterification using response surface methodology. The formation of the ester was found to depend on three parameters namely enzyme/substrate ratio, lactic acid (stearic acid) concentration and incubation period. The maximum esteri®cation predicted by theoretical equa- tions for both lipases matched well with the observed experimental values. In the case of R. miehei lipase, stearoyl lactic acid ester formation was found to increase with incubation period and lactic acid (stearic acid) concentrations with maximum esteri®cation of 26.9% at an enzyme/substrate (E/S) ratio of 125 g mol)1. In the case of porcine pancreas lipase, esteri®cation showed a steady increase with increase in incubation period and lactic acid (stearic acid) concentration independent of the E/S ratios employed. In the case of PPL, a maximum esteri®cation of 18.9% was observed at an E/S ratio of 25 g mol)1 at a lactic acid (stearic acid) concentration of 0.09 M after an incubation period of 72 h.</p>
