Resumo

A new conductometric biosensor was developed and characterized; the biosensor was based on horseradish peroxidase that was deposited in chitosan and chitosan/AuNPs films. The biosensors were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and current-voltage curves. Current-voltage curves in biosensors showed that the electrical conductivity and bistability in biosensors can be modulated by horseradish peroxidase. Horseradish peroxidase catalyzed the reduction of H2O2 to H2O with the oxidation of the prosthetic group (Fe3+) in the enzyme to Fe4+=O. Conductometric signal in the biosensors increased with the gradual increase of H2O2 concentration, and it was due to the H2O2 reduction. Linear hydrogen peroxide detection was observed for a concentration between 0 and 15 mm. The results proved that these biosensors could have promising industrial applications, due to its rapid and sensitive H2O2 detection. (AU)
