Lipases in lipid modification: Past achievements and current applications

Since finishing his PhD in Lipid Chemistry at Deakin under the supervision of Professor Colin Barrow in 2014, Dr Taiwo Akanbi has been working on the use of lipases to produce fatty acid‐phenolic conjugates. During his PhD, he worked on the use and modification of new and known lipases for omega‐3 concentration and conversion.

He has developed an array of environmentally friendly techniques for separating and concentrating omega‐3 fatty acids via solvent engineering of lipase. In 2012, his work was an award winner during the 5th Australasian Symposium on Ionic Liquids (ASIL‐5) and in 2014, he received two prestigious awards at the American Oil Chemist Society (AOCS) conference in San Antonio, USA where he gave an award lecture. He has co‐authored book chapters, published research articles and obtained two patents.
