Enzymatic surface for multistep reactions

  1. Feb 4, 2019 #1
    Is it possible to create a surface with immobilised enzymes (or any other technique) that will perform a multistep reaction?

    I'm not at all sure what you are trying to do.

    But living cell membranes have enzymes and other special structures embedded in them to do exactly what you stated. Change the chemical properties of molecules. Membrane technology is used in laboratories.

    Perhaps if you stated clearly and specifically what you are attempting we could give you a good answer. I will note if you have some sort of secret innovation undergoing development, we may want to put this thread in the DIY forum. You will likely get better answers there.
