ABSTRACT
For detection of phenolic compounds in environmental water samples we propose an amperometric biosensor based on tyrosinase immobilized in titania sol–gel. The analytical characteristics toward catechol, p-cresol, phenol, p-chlorophenol, and p-methylcatechol were determined. The linear range for catechol determination was 2.2 × 10−7–1.3 × 10−5 mol L−1 with a limit of detection of 9 × 10−8 mol L−1 and sensitivity 2.0 × 103 mA mol−1 L. The influence of sample matrix components on the electrode response was studied according to Plackett–Burman experimental design. The potential interferents Mg2+, Ca2+, $$ {\text{HCO}}^{ - }_{3} $$ , $$ {\text{SO}}^{{2 - }}_{4} $$ , and Cl−, which are usually encountered in waters, were taken into account in the examination. Cu2+ was also taken into account, because CuSO4 is sometimes added to a water sample, as a preservative, before determination of phenolic compounds. It was found that among the ions tested only Mg2+ and Ca2+ did not directly affect the electrode response. The developed biosensor was used for determination of catechol in spring and surface water samples using the standard addition method. [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
