European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology, 2017, 119(5).In the present study, the immobilized SMG1-F278N lipase was employed for the esterification of 1,3-propylene glycol with oleic acid. This was the first report of using mono- and diacylglycerol lipase for the production of propylene glycol monoesters (PGME). It was found that immobilized SMG1-F278N preferred 1,3-propylene glycol than 1,2-propylene glycol. Molecular docking of 1,2-propylene glycol and 1,3-propylene glycol into SMG1-F278N suggested that the 1,3-propylene glycol preferentially binds to the active pocket of SMG1-F278N as compared to 1,2-propylene glycol.
