The thermal inactivation of immobilized lipase from Candida antarctica in 1-alcohols with four to eight carbons at various temperatures could be well expressed using a model in which heterogeneity in the susceptibility of the enzyme to the inactivation was assumed. It was found that the enthalpy-entropy compensation held for inactivation in 1-alcohols.
