Polyphenol oxidase (PPO) was immobilized in copolymers of thiophene functionalized menthyl monomer (MM) with pyrrole. Immobilization of enzyme was performed via entrapment in conducting copolymers during electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole. Maximum reaction rates. Michaelis-Menten constants and temperature, pH and operational stabilities of enzyme electrodes were investigated. Total amount of phenolic compounds in red wines of Turkey were analyzed by using these electrodes.
