A surfactant-horseradish peroxidase complex was prepared with a nonionic surfactant by utilizing water-in-oil emulsions. The complex was readily soluble in anhydrous benzene in which it proved to be an excellent biocatalyst for the oxidation of o-phenylenediamine using H2O2 or tert-butyl hydroperoxide as oxidants.
