The combined use of these enzymes synergistically promoted the recovery Microalgae of lipids from the microalgae, increasing the extraction yield from 40.8 to over 73%. Untreated and en- Nannochloropsis zymatically treated microalgae were characterized by chemical analysis and by TGA/DTG, FTIR, XRD and SEM. Thermal properties Signiﬁcant changes were observed in the chemical composition and thermal behavior of the microalgae. The Structural characterization enzymatic treatment also resulted in an
