Lipase-catalyzed synthesis of sucrose monoester: Increased productivity by combining enzyme pretreatment and non-aqueous biphasic medium

Sucrose monocaprate was synthesized by carrying out a lipase-catalyzed transesterification in a non-aqueous biphasic medium. Vinyl caprate was mechanically dispersed into a solution of sucrose in DMSO. The use of DMSO allowed increasing sucrose concentration up to 0.7M (in DMSO). The denaturing effect of DMSO on lipase was avoided by pretreatment of lipase by pH adjustment in the presence of crown ether. This pretreatment maintained a significant catalytic activity which led to 0.2M sucrose monoester within 1h at 50°C, which represented higher productivity than already reported. Detailed structural characterization revealed that only monoester was recovered and the 2-O-acylated sucrose monocaprate was the major isomer in the final product.
