In this study, invertase was immobilized in copolymer electrodes constructed. Three different types of polymethyl methacrylate-co-polymethyl thienyl methacrylate matrices were used to obtain copolymers that were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy. Immobilization of enzymes was carried out by the entrapment of the enzyme in conducting polymer matrices during electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole through thiophene moieties of polymers. Immobilization of the enzyme was achieved by application of 1.0 V constant potential on a platinum electrode for 30 min in solution. The effects of temperature and pH on the activity of the enzyme electrodes were examined and operational stability studies were done. The changes in the maximum reaction rate and the variations in the Michaelis-Menten constant were studied. (C) 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.


Immobilization of invertase and glucose oxidase in conducting H-type polysiloxane/polypyrrole block copolymers
Gursel, A; Alkan, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-01)
In this study, immobilizations of enzymes, invertase and glucose oxidase, were achieved in conducting copolymers of N-pyrrolyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane/polypyrrole (PDMS/PPy) matrices via electrochemical polymerization. The kinetic parameters, v(max) (maximum reaction rate) and K-m (substrate affinity), of both free and immobilized enzymes were determined. The effect of supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid and sodium dodecyl sulfate, on enzyme activity and film morphologies was examined. ...

Tuncagil, Sevinc; Kiralp, Senem; Varls, Serhat; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2008-03-01)
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.
Immobilization of glucose oxidase and polyphenol oxidase in poly(N-(4-(3-thienyl methylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl) maleimide)-co-pyrrole) matrice
Çil, Mahmut; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
In this study, glucose oxidase and polyphenol oxidase were immobilized in conducting copolymer poly(N-(4-(3-thienyl methylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl)maleimide)-co-pyrrole(P(MBThi-co-Py)). A copolymer was electrochemically synthesized by using sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) as supporting electrolyte and characterized by FTIR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and conductivity measurements. Immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOD) and polyphenol oxidase (PPO) enzymes were performed in conducting PPy and P(MBThi-co-...
Synthesis and characterization of epoxy based nanocomposites
Basara, G; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2005-11-01)
Epoxy-clay nanocomposites were synthesized to examine the effects of the content and type of different clays on the structure and mechanical properties of the nanocomposites. Diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A (epoxy) was reinforced by 0.5-11 wt % natural (Cloisite Na+) and organically modified (Cloisite 3013) types of montmorillonite. SEM results showed that as the clay content increased, larger agglomerates of clay were present. Nano-composites with Cloisite 30B exhibited better dispersion and a lower degree...
Electrorheological properties of kaolinite, polyindole, and polyindole/kaolinite composite suspensions
Arslan, Yasin; Unal, Halil Ibrahim; Yilmaz, Hasim; Sari, Bekir (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
In this study, polyindole (PIN) and polyindole/kaolinite (PIN/KAO) composite were synthesized by free radical polymerization using FeCl3 as an initiator. Average particle sizes (d(50)) of PIN and PIN/KAO composite were determined by dynamic light scattering (DLS) as 7.2 and 6.2 mu m, respectively. The samples were characterized by FTIR, elemental analysis, DSC/TGA and SEM measurements. Suspensions of KAO, PIN, and PIN/KAO composite were prepared in silicone oil (SO) and the sedimentation stabilities were de...
