Keywords: porous nanocomposites, hierarchically ordered pores, enzyme, bio-catalysis

A novel nanocomposites has been synthesised and used as a support for immobilisation of lipase for the hydrolysis of ester. The synthesis of nanocomposites has been patented and published in the high impact factor journals however no applications has ever been reported. This abstract relates to the applications of such novel nanocomposites which could have potential impact to energy and pharmaceutical sectors.
