Title: Immobilised enzymes

Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for immobilizing enzymes in a solid porous support, and to enzymes immobilized in solid porous supports. Specifically, the present invention uses a fluid containing the enzyme under high pressure (such as 25 to 50 Mpa) to immobilize the enzyme (such as CALB) on the porous support (such as silica). The resulting porous support contain more immobilized enzyme than would otherwise have been obtained by a process carried out at atmospheric pressures.
