Abstract

In this contribution, we demonstrate the potential of combining bioinspired synthesis and continuous flow processing to generate functional materials with possible applications in catalysis, biocatalysis and photonic devices. Specifically, we have prepared invertase immobilized on silica while preserving its enzymatic activity. Furthermore, we present routes to synthesize silica and gold colloid composite materials (Au@SiO2) and demonstrate that the colloids retain their optical activity.
