Resumo

We report a simple strategy to obtain an efficient enzymatic bioelectrochemical device, in which the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) was immobilized on gold electrodes functionalized with mixed self-assembled monolayer (SAM(mix)) of 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid (11-MUA) and 2-mercaptoethanol (C2OH). Development of the modified electrodes included the chemical adsorption of SAM(mix) on gold surface followed by immersion in AChE solution, resulting in the final Au/SAM(mix)/AChE configuration. For comparison, the electrochemical performance of Au/11-MUA/AChE and Au/C2OH/AChE electrodes were also investigated. The performance of the modified electrodes toward acetylthiocholine hydrolysis was investigated via cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometric measurements, revealing a fast increase in anodic current with a well-defined peak upon addition of acetylthiocholine iodide to the electrolytic solution. The anodic currents for Au/SAM(mix)/AChE electrodes were significantly higher than those for Au/11-MUNAChE and Au/C2OH/AChE electrodes. The Au/SAM(mix)/AChE architecture provided by the SAM(mix) surface promoted a high oxidation current of thiocholine at 0.31 V without the need of electron mediators. The chronoamperometric biosensor developed here provided a linear response to carbaryl in the concentration range of 0 to 1.75 mu M. The detection limit and quantification values for carbaryl were found to be 3.45 x 10(-10) M and 1.15 x 10(-9) M, respectively. Michaelis-Menten kinetics, K-M(app), of 0.46 mM was obtained, indicating that the electrode architecture employed is advantageous for fabrication of enzymatic devices via physical adsorption process with improvement of the biocatalytic properties.
