Immobiliation of glucose oxidase and polyphenol oxidase in conducting copolymer of pyrrole functionalized polystyrene with pyrrole

Ekinci, Olçun
Electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole functionalized polystyrene (PStPy) with pyrrole was carried out in water-sodium dodecyl sulfate solvent-electrolyte couple. Characterization of the resulting copolymer was performed via Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and four probe conductivity measurements. Glucose oxidase and polyphenol oxidase enzymes were immobilized in polypyrrole (PPy) and conducting copolymer of pyrrole functionalized polystyrene with pyrrole (P(PStPy-co-Py). Resulting enzyme electrodes were characterized by kinetic parameters; Vmax and Km. Behavior of enzyme electrodes upon temperature and pH changes were investigated. Glucose oxidase electrode was used for the determination of glucose in orange juice and polyphenol oxidase electrode was used for the determination of polyphenolic compounds in red wine.


Synthesis, characterization and electrical properties of diazophenylene and diazodiphenylene bridged co, ni, cu, ce, and er phthalocyanine polymers
Alkan, Cemil; Alkan, Cemil; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2004)
In this research, diazophenylene and diazodiphenylene bridged metal-phthalocyanine polymers were produced from diazonium salt of diaminophenylene/bensidin and pre-synthesized tetraamino metal phthalocyanines. Tetraamino metal phthalocyanine complexes of Co, Ni, Cu, Ce, and Er were obtained by reducing tetranitro metal phthalocyanine complexes synthesized from 3-nitrophthalic anhydride, urea, metal salt, and ammonium molybdate catalyst. Complexes and polymers were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared ...

Dülgerbaki, Çiğdem; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Chemistry (2006)
In this study, polythiophene(PTP)/montmorillonite(MMT) nanocomposites were synthesized by in situ intercalative polymerization and chemical oxidative polymerization. In in situ intercalative polymerization method, composites containing 90 and 95% MMT were prepared. In chemical oxidative polymerization method, a series of composites ranging from 1 to 15% by weight MMT were synthesized. Thermal and morphological properties of samples were investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Thermal Gravim...
Polyaniline: synthesis characterization solution properties and composites
Yılmaz, Faris; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2007)
Polyaniline was chemically synthesized at three different temperatures of 25, 0, and -25oC, by oxidative polymerization with ammonium peroxidisulfate at equimolar of aniline to oxidant ratio and 1M HCl. The resulted polyaniline was in a powder form which was characterized by several techniques such as: electrical conductivity, elemental analysis, thermal analysis, wide-angle X-Ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscope. The solution properties of the reduced polymer were studied by viscometry, static...
