Paluch Faculty of Chemistry Jagiellonian University KrakoÂw, Poland MOLECULAR INTERACTIONS IN THIN FILMS Properties of insoluble mixed monolayers of lipids at the water/air interface Abstract A study of monolayer mixing behaviour in binary D,Ldipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine/ 3-monopalmitoyl glycerol mixtures was undertaken. For this purpose, the isotherms of surface pressure versus molecular area were acquired at four dierent tempera- Introduction The study of mixed monolayers is of particular importance because it makes it possible to gain knowledge about the interactions between the monolayer compounds.
Vesicles in which glucose oxidase is encapsulated do Introduction The making of biosensors requires the immobilization of the highly selective molecule, usually an enzyme, on a solid surface. One of the most attractive process is electrochemical immobilization, mainly because of its simplicity and rapidity. This method involves the electrochemical oxidation of a suitable monomer from a supporting electrolyte containing enzyme to form a polymer ®lm on the electrode surface. ) so that the enzymes are incompatible with certain polymers [1±3].
We indeed measure a higher enzymatic activity when glucose oxidase is incorporated in the polypyrrole ®lm using multilamellar vesicles. Key words Polypyrrole á Multilamellar vesicles á Glucose oxidase á Electric ®eld á Biosensor enzyme, so, for instance, positively charged proteins cannot be eciently entrapped in polypyrrole (PPy) ®lms . Finally, the low amount of the entrapped enzyme signi®cantly reduces the long-term stability of these biosensors. We believe that one way to solve these problems is to encapsulate the enzyme into multilamellar vesicles (MLV).
