In this study, magnetic nanoparticles (Fe3O4) were modified sequentially with silica (Fe3O4@SiO2), glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) by surface initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP) and hexamethylene diamine (as a spacer arm). The p(GMA) grafted and SA modified form (i.e., Fe3O4@SiO2@pGMA-SA-3) was used for covalent immobilization of invertase (EC The amount of immobilized enzyme on Fe3O4@SiO2@p(GMA) and Fe3O4@SiO2@p(GMA)-SA-3 was 36.1 +/- 0.9 and 33.4 +/- 1.3 mg/g, respectively. The K-m and V-max values of immobilized invertase were found to be 39.4 mmol/L and 349.5 mmol/L min, and not significantly changed compared with free form (34.3 mmol/L and 387.2 mmol/L min), respectively, revealed that the applied protocol did not have any detrimental effect on the retained activity of immobilized invertase.
