The polymer-mediated self-assembly of silica and gold nanoparticles leads to extended aggregates. After calcination and subsequent surface modification, these aggregates serve as supports for the covalent immobilization of lipase. The obtained biocatalysts exhibit high efficiencies and long-term stability.
