Laccase is one of the widely used enzymes for biotechnological processes. Immobilization of enzymes is a universally accepted approach to increase their reusability and stability. In this study, laccase enzyme from Trametes versicolor was encapsulated for the first time in a chitosan-nanobiochar matrix. The chitosan-tripolyphosphate gel formation technique was employed to produce homogeneous biocatalyst nanoparticles, with 35% effective binding efficiency and 3.5 Units/g apparent activity under the best configuration. The reusability of the encapsulated laccase was demonstrated towards the oxidation of 2,2′-azinobis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonate) (ABTS) for several consecutive cycles, exhibiting 30% of the initial activity after 5 cycles. The encapsulated laccase showed a moderate increase in enzyme stability against pH and temperature variation compared to the free enzyme. Moreover, the storage stability of laccase at both 4 °C and 25 °C was increased after immobilization. Only 2% of laccase was leaked during a 5-day period from biocatalyst. Laccase in its free form showed no antibacterial activity against Gram positive and Gram-negative model microorganisms, while encapsulated laccase showed antibacterial activity towards Gram-positive ones. Thus, the encapsulation of the laccase is an efficient method to keep the enzyme active and stable for different applications.
