Here we report the synthesis of a novel conducting polymer and its properties as an immobilization platform for biosensor application. The conducting polymer has functional groups used for the formation of amide bonding with the enzyme immobilized on the polymer surface. After covalent immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOx) on the polymeric matrix, its application for glucose biosensing was investigated in detail. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and contact angle measurements were used to monitor the surface properties of the polymer before and after biomolecule conjugation. The optimized biosensor showed a very good linearity between 0.01 mM and 1.2 mM, a 13 s response time and a detection limit (LOD) of 0.004 mM to glucose. Also, kinetic parameters, operational and storage stabilities were determined. Apparent Michaelis constant (K-m(app)) and I-max values of 1.17 mM and 11.28 mu A, respectively, were obtained.

Kalaycioglu, E; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yagci, Y; Harabagiu, V; Pintela, M; Ardelean, R; Simionescu, BC (1998-08-30)
Synthesis of a siloxane polymer with pyrrole end groups has been described. Electrochemical block polymerization of pyrrole through these end groups has been achieved. Characterization of the electrolytic products has been performed by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermal gravimetry analysis (TGA) analyses and FT-IR studies. The effects of different dopant ions, namely, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB), i...
Synthesis and electrochromic properties of conducting polymers of 5,8-di(pyrrol-2-yl)-2,3-di(thiophen-2-yl) quinoxaline and its copolymers
Taşkın, Aslı Tuba; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2009)
A novel electroactive monomer 5,8-Di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)-2, 3-di(thiophen-2-yl) quinoxaline (PTQ) was successfully synthesized via Stille Coupling reaction between quinoxaline and pyrrole. Nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR and 13C NMR) and Mass spectroscopy were used to characterize the monomer. The monomer was electrochemically polymerized in the presence of tetrabutylammonium perchlorate (TBAP) as supporting electrolyte in dichloromethane. Monomer reveals relatively low oxidation potential at +0.70V. Spectro...

Chivas, R.; Yerci, Selçuk; Li, R.; Dal Negro, L.; Morse, T. F. (2011-09-01)
We have used aerosol deposition to synthesize defect and micro-strain free, ultra-pure germanium nanoparticles. Transmission electron microscopy images show a core-shell configuration with highly crystalline core material. Powder X-ray diffraction measurements verify the presence of highly pure, nano-scale germanium with average crystallite size of 30 nm and micro-strain of 0.058%. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy demonstrates that GeOx (x <= 2) shells cover the surfaces of the nanoparticles. Under optical ...

A novel approach for the fabrication of a biosensor from a conducting polymer bearing polypeptide segments and ferrocene moieties is reported. The approach involves the electrochemical copolymerization of the electroactive polypeptide macromonomer and independently prepared ferrocene imidazole derivative of dithiophene, on the electrode surface. The polypeptide macromonomer was synthesized by the simultaneous formation of N-carboxyanhydride (NCA) and ring opening polymerization of N-Boc-L-lysine (alpha-amin...
Synthesis and characterization of a polybenzoxazine from a difunctional amine and a trifunctional phenol
Kaya, Şafak; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2009)
Synthesis of a polymer with benzoxazine units in the main chain backbone by a trifunctional phenol, a difunctional amine, and paraformaldehyde was achieved. Thermal, mechanical and spectroscopic characterization and the viscosity properties of the synthesized polymer were studied. In the first step of this study, a fast and feasible method for the synthesis of the benzoxazine precursors was developed since some methods mentioned in the literature about the synthesis of the benzoxazine derivatives last long ...
