There are various calorimetric techniques being used to investigate the various protein aspects. In case of differential scanning calorimetry, thermodynamic parameters (mid vales of temperatures maxima, enthalpy change) are used to study protein unfolding, protein stability in its soluble and immobilized states as well as matrix efficiency (viz. lipid, polynucleotide). In case of enzyme immobilization, it is helpful in the assessment of protein (enzyme) stability after immobilization, effect of microenvironment on immobilized enzyme (using isothermal batch and flow calorimetry) and catalytic efficiency of immobilized enzyme.

Furthermore, thickness of the enzyme layer present at the matrix surface can also be found by assessment of elemental depth distribution and thickness of ring containing amino acids such as histidine, tryptophan, tyrosine etc. [177, 178]. • Surface plasmon resonance (SPR): This is used in studying various biological processes including conformational and interaction studies. It can be used for small biological molecules with diameter ≥20 nm. It is based on collecting information from oscillating resonant electrons at the interface between negative and positive permittivity material stimulated by incident light.

It has been found that the higher the concentration of substrate, greater would be the barrier caused by external diffusion. The Nernst layer is thickened with time, which subsequently decreases the Vmax of the immobilized enzyme [130]. However, increase in stirring would help in reducing the effects caused by external diffusion due to the following relation: α= Vmax Km where, α is the diffusion constant. Furthermore, polyionic matrices also affect kinetic parameters of immobilized enzymes due to partitioning effects, which involves interaction between the matrix and the ionic substrate as well as product molecules [130].
