We examined the activity of free Rhizopus oryzae lipase (ROL) and ROL immobilized on mesoporous materials in transesterification reactions in various dialkylimidazolium-cation based ionic liquids. For free ROL, the highest activity (0.39 U/mg protein) was obtained in [OMIm][PF6] followed by that (0.28 U/mg protein) in [BMIm][PF6]. Specific activities of ROL immobilized on mesocellular foam (MCF) were only 0.47 and 0.43 U/mg protein in [OMIm][PF6] and [BMIm][PF6], respectively. However, the specific activities of ROL immobilized on octaclecyl functionalized MCF (C-18-MCF) increased significantly to 15.64 and 14.84U/mg protein in [OMIm][PF6] and [BMIm][PF6], respectively. Consequently, ROL immobilized on C18-MCF is a promising biocatalyst for biotransformation reactions in ionic liquids.
