In this study, immobilization of invertase on functionalized polymer electrodes constructed with pyrrole-capped polyazotetrahydrofuran and polytetrahydrofuran-block-polystyrene copolymer matrices was performed. Immobilization in these enzyme electrodes was carried out by file entrapment of the enzyme in conducting polymer matrices during electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole. Sodium dodecyl sulphate was used as the supporting electrolyte in the preparation of enzyme electrodes. The effects of temperature and pH on the activity of the enzyme electrodes were examined, and re-use number studies were performed. The changes in the maximum reaction rate and the variations of the Michaelis-Menten constant were investigated.

Kizilyar, N; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Ozden, MY; Yagci, Y (1999-06-24)
Four different polypyrrole/polytetrahydrofuran/invertase electrodes were constructed by the entrapment of invertase in conducting polymer matrices via electropolymerization. Immobilization of the enzyme was achieved by the application of a 1.1 V constant potential to a platinum electrode for 30 min in a solution containing 0.01 M pyrrole, 0.4 mg/ml invertase and 0.4 mg/ml sodium dodecyl sulphate. Performance of each electrode was optimized by examining the effects of pH and temperature on the properties of ...

Immobilization of yeast cells (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) in different polymer matrices was performed by constant potential electrolysis. These matrices were polypyrrole (PPy); poly(methyl methacrylate)/polypyrrole (,PMMA/PPy) and thiophene-capped poly(methyl methacrylate)/ polypyrrole (TPMMA/PPy). The characterization of PMMA/PPy copolymer was achieved by Fourier-transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The invertase activity of...

Immobilization of tyrosinase in conducting copolymer matrices of pyrrole functionalized polydimethylsiloxane/polypyrrole (PDMS/PPy) were achieved by electrochemical polymerization. The polysiloxane/polypyrrole/tyrosinase electrode was constructed by the entrapment of enzyme in conducting matrices during electrochemical copolymerization. Maximum reaction rate (Vmax) and Michaelis-Menten constant (Km) were investigated for immobilized enzyme. Enzyme electrodes were prepared in two different electrolyte/solven...

In this study, immobilization of invertase was achieved on a conducting polymer of 1-(4-nitrophenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole) (SNS (NO2)) via electrochemical polymerization. Kinetic parameters, maximum reaction rate (V-max) and substrate affinity (K-m), optimum temperature and pH, operational and storage stabilities of immobilized enzyme were determined.

This paper reports a novel approach in the electrode immobilization of an enzyme, invertase, by electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole in the presence of enzyme. The polypyrrole/invertase and polyamide/polypyrrole/invertase electrodes were constructed by the entrapment of enzyme in conducting matrices during electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole. This study involves the preparation and characterization of polypyrrole/invertase and polyamide/polypyrrole/invertase electrodes under conditions compatible...
