Here we report for the first time heat of ionization of invertase (E.C. active site residues from hyperproducer strain of Aspergillus niger (34.1 U ml-1), along with its physiochemical properties, kinetics and thermodynamics of stability-function. The Invertase showed great potential for industry as being highly efficient (kcat = 24167 s-1 at 65 °C, pH 5.0) and stable (half life= 12 h at 56°C).
