Biosensor construction and characterization studies of poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) and poly(1-vinyl imidazole) (PVI) complex systems have been carried out. The biosensors were prepared by mixing PAA with PVI at several stoichiometric ratios, x (molar ratio of the monomer repeat units). The enzyme, invertase, was entrapped in the PAA/PVA interpenetrating polymer networks during complexation. Modifications were made on the PAA/PVI conducting polymer electrolyte matrixes to improve the stability and performance of the polymer electrolyte-based enzyme biosensor. The maximum reaction rate (V-max) and Michaelis-Menten constant (K-m) were investigated for the immobilized invertase. The temperature and pH optimization, operational stability, and shelf life of the polymer electrolyte biosensor were also examined.


Amphoteric surface hydrogels derived from hydrogen-bonded multilayers: Reversible loading of dyes and macromolecules
Kharlampieva, Eugenia; Erel Göktepe, İrem; Sukhishvili, Svetlana A. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2007-01-02)
We used hydrogen-bonded multilayers of poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone) (PVPON) and poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) as precursors for producing surface-bound hydrogels and studied their pH-dependent swelling and protein uptake behavior using in situ attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and in situ ellipsometry. The hydrogels were produced by selective chemical cross-linking between PMAA units using carbodiimide chemistry and ethylenediamine (EDA) as a cross-linking reagent, followed by ...
Novel antifoam for fermentation processes: Fluorocarbon-hydrocarbon hybrid unsymmetrical bolaform surfactant
Çalık, Pınar; Erdinc, BI; Aydogan, N; Argun, M (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2005-09-13)
As foaming appears as a problem in chemical and fermentation processes that inhibits reactor performance, the eminence of a novel fluorocarbon-hydrocarbon unsymmetrical bolaform (FHUB: OH(CH2)(11)N+(C2H4)(2)(CH2)(2)(CF2)(5)CF3 I-) surfactant as an antifoaming agent as well as a foam-reducing agent was investigated and compared with other surfactants and a commercial antifoaming agent. The surface elasticity of FHUB was determined as 4 mN/m, indicating its high potential on thinning of the foam film. The int...
Synthesis of aromatic poly(pyridinium salt)s and their electrochromic properties
Keshtov, M. L.; UDUM, YASEMİN; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Kochurov, V. S.; Khokhlov, A. R. (Elsevier BV, 2013-05-15)
Synthesis of a series of new conjugated electrochromic polymeric pyridinium salts containing main-chain triphenylamine and their electrochromic properties were demonstrated. All polymers exhibit intense UV absorptions at 336-338 nm in DMF and 340-343 nm in thin film form and fluorescence centered at 410-438 nm in DMF and 460-461 nm in thin film form. The electrochromic properties of the films were investigated by electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods. Reversible redox signals with stable electr...
Phospholipid Complexation of General Anesthetics in Fluid Bilayers
Türkyılmaz, Serhan; Chen, Wen-Hua; Regen, Steven L. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-04-20)
A nearest-neighbor recogntion analysis has been performed in cholesterol-rich and cholesterol-poor liposomes derived from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) in the presence of varying concentrations of chloroform. This analysis has yielded a funamentally new, molecular-level view of the interaction of general anesthetics with lipid bilayers, which may be relevant to their biological action; that is, DPPC Forms 1:1 complexes with CHCl3 in both membranes in the fluid bilayer state.
Robust Covalent Coupling Scheme for the Development of FRET Aptasensor based on Amino-Silane-Modified Graphene Oxide
Kahyaoğlu, Leyla Nesrin (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2018-12-04)
In recent years, numerous aptamers have been physisorbed on graphene oxide (GO) to develop fluorescence resonance energy transfer-based aptasensors using the fluorescence quenching property of GO. However, physisorbed aptasensors show poor signal reversibility and reproducibility as well as nonspecific probe displacement, and thereby are not suitable for many analytical applications. To overcome these problems when working with complex biological samples, we developed a facile and robust covalent surface fu...
