Glucose oxidase/colloidal gold nanoparticles immobilized in Nafion film on glassy carbon electrode: Direct electron transfer and electrocatalysis.Bioelectrochemistry. 2006 Oct; 69(2):158-63.B
The direct electron transfer of glucose oxidase (GOD) was achieved based on the immobilization of GOD/colloidal gold nanoparticles on a glassy carbon electrode by a Nafion film. The immobilized GOD displayed a pair of well-defined and nearly reversible redox peaks with a formal potential (Eo ') of -0.434 V in 0.1 M pH 7.0 phosphate buffer solution and the response showed a surface-controlled electrode process. The dependence of Eo ' on solution pH indicated that the direct electron transfer reaction of GOD was a two-electron-transfer coupled with a two-proton-transfer reaction process. The experimental results also demonstrated that the immobilized GOD retained its electrocatalytic activity for the oxidation of glucose. So the resulting modified electrode can be used as a biosensor for detecting glucose.
