Manufacturing of ethyl acetate by lipase in both organic solvent and solvent-free system was studied and the apparent kinetics of the reaction was analyzed following the Michaelis - Menten model. It was found that substrate (acid) inhibition occurred during the reaction, regardless of the media used. In order to characterize the kinetics, constants of the reaction (K M, υmax, and KI) were determined.
