Cholesterol oxidase has been immobilized in conducting copolymers of thiophene-3-yl acetic acid cholesteryl ester with pyrrole (CM/PPy) and polypyrrole (PPy) via electropolymerization. p-Toluene sulphonic acid was used as the supporting electrolyte. Kinetic parameters (V-max and K-m) and operational stability of enzyme electrodes were investigated. Surface morphology of the films was examined by scanning electron microscope.
