Paper Title:
Effects of Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonate Detergent on the Activity of Cassava Fermenting Enzyme
  Abstract

The effect of linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS) detergent on the activity of cassava fermenting enzymes was investigated for 72 hrs. Enzymatic assay methods were used to determine the activity of cassava fermenting enzymes: cellulase, α-amylase, pectin methyl esterase and phosphorylase. The cassava fermenting media were made up of LAS detergent concentration of between 1g/L to 5g/L. The results show that the LAS detergent of 2g/L and 3g/L gave optimum enzyme activity. The order of enzyme activity was pectin methyl esterase > α-amylase > phosphorylase > cellulase.
