Tannase (EC 22.214.171.124) was quantitatively immobilised onto Eupergit® C 250 L and coated by layers of alternatively charged polystyrene sulfonate and polyallylamine hydrochloride, respectively. The layer-by-layer (LbL)-coated immobilised tannase, i.e., LbL-tannase retained its original activity and showed significant resistance to deactivation and maintained 50% of its activity after seven consecutive cycles of hydrolysis reactions, each run for 24h. The LbL coating did not hinder the substrate access to the active site of the enzyme. Both gallo- and ellagitannins were efficiently hydrolysed upon treatment with LbL-tannase. The formation of gallic acid and the reaction patterns were followed by HPLC and the recently developed <sup>31</sup>P NMR analytical method for the characterisation of tannins.
