    Abstract

    We describe herein, the creation of an organic phase enzyme electrode (OPEE) via avidin-biotin interactions built over an electrogenerated polymer. Multilayered polyphenol oxidase (PPO) assemblies were transferred into an organic solvent (chloroform) for the catechol detection at -0.2 V. In conjunction with an alginate gel, as a hydrophilic additive, the biosensor performance was widely enhanced. The effects of biotinylated polypyrrole film and alginate gel on the diffusion process through the biosensor coating are studied by rotating disk electrode experiments carried out in chloroform with hydroquinone as electroactive permeant.
