Glucose oxidase was immobilized in conducting copolymers of three different types of poly(methyl methacrylate-co-thienyl methacrylate). Immobilization of enzyme was carried out by the entrapment in conducting polymers during electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole on the copolymer electrodes. Maximum reaction rate, Michaelis-Menten constants, temperature, pH and operational stabilities were determined for immobilized enzyme. The amount of glucose in orange juices of Turkey was investigated by using enzyme electrodes. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
