Abstract [en]

The interaction between a microbial lipase and an anionic and a cationic surfactant at the air-water interface has been studied by neutron reflectivity. Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (TTAB) were used as anionic and cationic surfactant, respectively. The same enzyme-surfactant systems were also studied at the interface between a hydrophobic solid surface and water by ellipsometry, and the results from the two techniques were compared. Surface tension measurements were also performed in order to monitor complex formation in bulk. The data obtained from neutron reflectivity and from ellipsometry were in very good agreement with each other. Both techniques show that lipase adsorbs readily at the interfaces and that SDS at low concentration does not interact strongly with this protein layer. At higher SDS concentration, the protein is displaced from the surface. On the other hand, when TTAB is added at low concentration, a thick lipase-surfactant layer is formed at the surfaces. This compact layer is solubilized by further addition of the cationic surfactant.
