Surfactant (lipid) aggregates formed in ternary systems of 'Surfactant (lipid) - water - oil' type can be considered as nanocontainers for encapsulation of compounds of different nature and carrying out various chemical and enzymatic reactions. In the presentation, an important determining role of matrix for both chemical and biochemical processes will be discussed in a light of pressure affect matrix parameters and enzymes.
