Abstract: A simple and promising H2O2 biosensor has been developed by successfulentrapment of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) in a gelatine matrix which was cross-linkedwith formaldehyde. The large microscopic surface area and porous morphology of thegelatine matrix lead to high enzyme loading and the enzyme entrapped in this matrix canretain its bioactivity. This biosensor exhibited a fast amperometric response to hydrogenperoxide (H2O2). The linear range for H2O2 determination was from 2.5×10-5 to2.5×10-3 M, with a detection limit of 2.0×10-6 M based on S / N = 3. This biosensorpossessed very good reproducibility.
Keywords: H2O2 biosensor; horseradish peroxidase; gelatine matrix.
