A potentiometric enzyme electrode for monitoring in organic solvents
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A potentiometric enzyme electrode is described for monitoring reactions in organic solvents. By use of an enzyme deposited on magnetic particles which are attracted to the tip of the electrode by means of a magnetic field, it is possible to produce an electrode in which the enzyme can easily be exchanged. As an example, studies of the chymotrypsin-catalyzed ester synthesis in diisopropyl ether and in toluene at varying water contents are reported. The results are consistent with those obtained from batch experiments. Operational behaviour and signal stability of the system makes this kind of potentiometric enzyme electrode attractive for monitoring bioorganic processes.
