Lipase enzyme contains natural substrates like triacylglycerols. Lipase belongs to the class of serine hydrolases & therefore, do not require any cofactor, in human digestive system or pancreatic lipase. It is also used in cheese fermentation and most commonly used as biocatalysis to breakdown of fats and oils. lipase also used in esterification and transestericaion reaction. Therefore now a days lipase enzyme widely used in industries. Immobilized or conjugated nanoparticles with lipase tend to give faster reactions than only enzyme. By using nano conjugates transesterification reaction carried out with various substrate, in this work lipase enzyme was used to synthesize Agnp by green approach using natural source like delliana indica and coconut.
