Nowadays biocatalysts are being multidisciplinary research topic for their attractive applications in different fields ranging from biomedical applications to biofuels synthesis. Immobilization of biocatalysts on solid support is very important to show high efficiency, site specific activity and to retain their native nature in adverse environment. Of the solid supports, magnetic particles have attracted much attention because of their suitability, guidance by applying magnetic field and easy separation to recycle biocatalysts. Although extensive research works on biocatalysts immobilized onto magnetic nanoparticle support have been performed, very few literature reviews are only available. With this view a critical short review on the different aspects of magnetic nanoparticles as potential solid support for recyclable biocatalysts is described here.
