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 with the enzyme. It demonstrates the effects of pH and temperature on the properties of enzyme electrode. Enzyme leakage tests were carried out during reuse number studies. The preparation of enzyme electrodes was done in two different electrolyte/solvent systems. The enzyme serves as a sucrose electrode and retains its activity for several months.

Balci, Z; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Alkan, S; Bakir, U; Yagci, Y (2002-01-01)
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...

TÜMTÜRK, HAYRETTİN; DEMİREL, Gökhan; ALTINOK, HAYDAR; AKSOY, SERPİL; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2008-04-01)
In this study, glucose isomerase enzyme was entrapped into modified and nonmodified calcium alginate gel beads. Various characteristics of free and immobilized enzymes such as the optimum pH, temperature and dependence of activity on storage and operational stability were evaluated. The optimum pH and temperature of free and immobilized glucose isomerase were found to be the same values as 7.5 and 60C, respectively. For free and immobilized enzymes, kinetic parameters were calculated as 1.79 x 10(-2) and 8....
Immobilization of invertase, polyphenol oxidase and glucose oxidase n conducting copolymers of thiophene-capped polytetrahydrofuran and pyrrole
Böyükbayram, Ayşe Elif; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2005)
Immobilization of invertase, polyphenol oxidase (PPO) and glucose oxidase (GOD) enzymes were performed in electrochemically synthesized two types of conducting copolymers. One end and two end thiophene-capped polytetrahydrofuran (TPTHF-1 and TPTHF-2) were copolymerized with pyrrole under conditions of constant potential electrolysis. The copolymers were characterized by thermal, spectroscopic and scanning electron microscopy analyses. Immobilization was carried out via entrapment of enzymes in two types of ...
Electrochemical polymerization of 1-(4-nitrophenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1 H-pyrrole as a novel immobilization platform for microbial sensing
Tuncagil, Sevinc; ODACI DEMİRKOL, DİLEK; Varis, Serhat; TİMUR, SUNA; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2009-09-01)
Two types of bacterial biosensor were constructed by immobilization of Gluconobacter oxydans and Pseudomonas fluorescens cells on graphite electrodes modified with the conducting polymer; poly(1-(4-nitrophenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1 H-pyrrole) [SNS(NO2)]. The measurement was based on the respiratory activity of cells estimated by the oxygen consumption at -0.7 V due to the metabolic activity in the presence of substrate. As well as analytical characterization, the linear detection ranges, effects of electropo...
Immobilization of glucose oxidase in poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) membranes
Arica, Y.; Hasirci, V.N.; Arica, Yakup (Elsevier BV, 1987-11)
Glucose oxidase (GOD) was immobilized in a poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (HEMA) membrane through matrix entrapment in order to investigate the effect of various parameters (e.g. concentration of ingredients, temperature, repeated interaction with glucose and shelf storage) on the activity of the enzyme. Permeability of the membrane to a model permeant was tested and SEMs were obtained. It was observed that upon immobilization the affinity of GOD towards glucose was substantially decreased, and increasin...
