PublicationElectrochimica ActaThree immobilization protocols were investigated with respect to direct electron transfer between hierarchical carbon microfibers/carbon nanotubes composite material on graphite rod electrodes and Trametes hirsuta laccase. Immobilization was done by covalent binding of laccase to aminophenyl-modified electrodes via amide-bond formation with carboxylic acid residues or imino-bond formation with aldehyde groups introduced by oxidation of sugar residues of the enzyme’s glycosylation shell. Moreover, immobilization was achieved by adsorbing laccase to electrodes hydrophilized with pyrene-hexanoic acid. High current densities for biocatalytic oxygen reduction were obtained for all immobilization strategies. The formation of the imino bonds let to the binding of laccase in close to 100% direct electron transfer configuration and consequently to the highest oxygen reduction currents.

Three immobilization protocols were investigated with respect to direct electron transfer between hierarchical
carbon microfibers/carbon nanotubes composite material on graphite rod electrodes and Trametes
hirsuta laccase. Immobilization was done by covalent binding of laccase to aminophenyl-modified electrodes
via amide-bond formation with carboxylic acid residues or imino-bond formation with aldehyde
groups introduced by oxidation of sugar residues of the enzyme’s glycosylation shell. Moreover, immobilization
was achieved by adsorbing laccase to electrodes hydrophilized with pyrene-hexanoic acid.
High current densities for biocatalytic oxygen reduction were obtained for all immobilization strategies.
The formation of the imino bonds let to the binding of laccase in close to 100% direct electron transfer
configuration and consequently to the highest oxygen reduction currents
