In general, metal ions are able to quench the fluorescence of organic ligands. The complexes each exh ibit characteristics fluorescence, with 2-N-ethylaminopyrimidine showed a high relative intensity compared to 2-N-anilinopyrimidine complex. 131 23rd-25th June 2010 3rd ICYC 2010 Universiti Sains Malaysia INO-O18 ENCAPSULATION OF ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE IN MESOPOROUS METHYL-SILICA HYBRID BY SOL-GEL PROCESS

In this research, encapsulation of Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) enzyme in mesoporous methyl -silica hybrid by sol-gel process has been carried out. Mesoporous methyl -silica hybrid has been synthesis by using tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS) and methyltriethoxysilane (MTES) as precursor and poly(ethylene) glycol (PEG) as a polymer dopant. The preparation of methyl -silica hybrid was carried out at various mol ratios of precursors and PEG concentration. Encapsulation was emphasized by mixing sol solution and tris -HCl buffer containing ALP. The Surface Area Analyzer analysis data showed that the pore diameter and surface area of methyl-silica hybrid tended to increase as the PEG dopant concentration increases. Result showed that ALP encapsulated in the methyl-silica hybrids with PEG dopant gave enzymatic activity as 0.112 U/mg enzyme, higher than ALP encapsulated in copolymerization of TEOS with MTES or in silica from TEOS precursor only (0.098 U/mg enzyme and 0.069 U/mg enzyme, respectively). It was shown that copolymerizatio n of TEOS with organosilane precursor and the entrapm...
