Abstract in another language

In a recent article, Mano and de Poulpiquet reviewed O2 reduction in enzymatic fuel cells based on multicopper oxidases such as bilirubin oxidase or laccase. Miscellaneous electrode configurations based on these enzymes have already been presented in the literature encompassing direct or mediated electron transfer, various immobilisation matrices, and diverse electrode materials and structures. In this context, we present the optimisation of a biocathode for O2 reduction with respect to the composition of the immobilisation matrix. The enzyme was immobilised on a glassy carbon electrode by crosslinking. No mediator was employed, and a direct electron transfer between multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) and laccase was established. The MWCNTs were dispersed with chitosan by ultrasound treatment. The immobilisation matrix contained a mixture of MWCNT, laccase from Trametes versicolor, and poly-(ethylene glycol) diglycidyl ether as crosslinker. The total amount of the immobilisation mixture (equivalent to the film thickness) as well as the portions of the individual components were varied. The performance of the biocathode was tested in nitrogen and pure oxygen atmosphere, respectively, while a potential of 0.4 V vs. Ag/AgCl was applied.
