Structured phenolic lipids (PLs) were obtained by lipase-catalyzed transesterification of flaxseed oil, in a solvent-free system (SFS), with selected phenolic acids, including hydroxylated and/or methoxylated derivatives of cinnamic, phenyl acetic and benzoic acids. A bioconversion yield of 65% was obtained for the transesterification of flaxseed oil with 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid (DHPA). However, the effect of the chemical structure of phenolic acids on the transesterification of flaxseed oil in SFS was of less magnitude as compared to that in organic solvent system (OSS). Using DHPA, the APCI-MS analysis confirmed the synthesis of monolinolenyl, dilinolenyl, linoleyl linolenyl and oleyl linolenyl dihydroxyphenyl acetates as phenolic lipids. A significant increase in the enzymatic activity from 200 to 270nmol of PLs/g solid enzyme/min was obtained upon the addition of the non-ionic surfactant Span 65. However, upon the addition of the anionic surfactant, sodium bis-2-ethylhexyl sulfosuccinate (AOT), and the cationic one, hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), the enzymatic activity was decreased slightly from 200 to 192 and 190nmol of PLs/g solid enzyme/min, respectively. The results also showed that the increase in DHPA concentration from 20 to 60mM resulted in a significant increase in the volumetric productivity (P(V)) from 1.61 to 4.74mg PLs per mL reaction mixture per day.
