Abstract

By using soluble and insoluble glucose oxidase, the changes in intrinsic emission fluorescence in the visible spectral region were studied as a function of glucose concentration. Insoluble glucose oxidase (GOD) was obtained by entrapment in a gelatine membrane or by covalent attachment on an agarose membrane grafted with hexamethylendiamine. The intensity of the fluorescence emission peak at 520 nm or the value of the integral fluorescence area from 480 to 580 nm were taken as physical parameters representative of the glucose concentration during the enzyme reaction. By using these parameters, linear calibration curves for glucose concentration were obtained. The extension of the calibration curve and the sensitivity of the adopted systems were found to be dependent on the enzyme state (free or immobilized) and on the immobilization method. In particular, it was found that the extent of the linear range of the calibration curves is increased of one order of magnitude when the glucose oxidase is immobilized, while the sensitivity of the measure is decreased of one order of magnitude by the immobilization process. Measures carried out by using the integral fluorescence area resulted more sensitive than those obtained with the peak size. Useful indications for the construction of optical fibre-based sensors were drawn from the reported results. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
