ABSTRACT
After being treated by mixed acids, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were shortened and had negatively charged groups on the surface. Positively charged hemoglobin or myoglobin at pH 5.0 was successfully assembled with SWNTs into layer-by-layer films on solid surfaces, designated as {SWNT/protein} n . While only those proteins in the first few bilayers closest to the electrode surface exhibited electroactivity, the {SWNT/protein} n films demonstrated a much higher fraction of electroactive proteins and better controllability in film construction compared with cast films of the proteins and carbon nanotubes. The proteins in the {SWNT/protein} n films retained their near-native structure at medium pH. The stable protein film electrode showed good electrocatalytic properties toward reduction of oxygen and hydrogen peroxide, demonstrating the potential application of the {SWNT/protein} n films as a new type of biosensor based on the direct electrochemistry of proteins without using mediators.

    A novel amperometric biosensor for nitrite was developed by immobilization of hemoglobin (Hb) and a room temperature ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methyl imidazolium tetrafluoroborate (EMIT), on a multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) modified electrode. Compared with Hb/MWNTs modified electrode, the...

    The standard method for determining the myoglobin (Mb) concentration in blood-perfused tissue often relies on a simple but clever differencing algorithm of the optical spectra, as proposed by Reynafarje. However, the underlying assumptions of the differencing algorithm do not always lead to an...
