We have been working in different applications of lipases from different sources, wild and mutated, with different classes of organic solvents and different model substrates, trying to establish some correlations between physico-chemical characteristics of the solvents and structural aspects of the substrate. More recently, room-temperature ionic liquids have been also employed as media for biocatalysed reactions. Besides potential environmental benefits, ionic liquids permit enzyme-catalysed reactions in a solvent polarity range that was previously inaccessible, offering major advantages with polar substrates.
