The extraction behavior of native and heated-denatured α-chymotrypsin has been investigated with two different reversed micellar systems. A large difference in the degree of extraction was observed for the native relative to the denatured α-chymotrypsin. In particular, mixed reversed micelles formulated with DOLPA (dioleyl phosphoric acid) and AOT show a high selectivity for the active α-chymotrypsin.
