In this study, immobilizations of invertase and glucose oxidase were achieved in conducting thiophene functionalized copolymers of vinyl alcohol with thiophene side groups and pyrrole (PVATh/PPy) 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 the enzyme activity and film morphologies was examined. The optimum temperature, operational and storage stabilities of immobilized enzymes were determined. PVATh/PPy copolymer was found to exhibit significantly enhanced properties compared to pristine polypyrrole. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
