Electrochemical Activity Of Hydrolysate

Good Essays
Gold electrodes were prepared after cleaning with H2SO4 and H2O2. Glucose oxidase and laccase were immobilized on the GO/Co/chitosan modified electrodes in a sodium phosphate buffer solution (0.1 M, Ph 7) for 8 h [12]. The electrochemical activities of enzymatic electrodes were measured using VersaSTAT3 (AMETEK, Princeton Applied Research, USA). Electrochemical measurements such as CV and EIS were carried out using an Au electrode with the assembled glucose oxidase, Ag/AgCl, and a Pt wire as the working electrode, reference electrode, and the counter electrodes, respectively [13]. The following parameters were used to measure EIS using a Nyquist plot: start frequency, 20 Hz; end frequency, was 0.01 Hz; and amplitude voltage, 10 mV. The resistances …show more content…

3.1 Cyclic voltammetry measurement
CV of the redox reaction of the hydrolysate was measured at various concentrations. In the 80 °C bath, the initial hydrolysate concentration was 2% and was further diluted to 1% and 0.5%. Fig. 2(A) shows the CV curves, indicating the tendency and relation of current with varying potential (volt). As the hydrolysate dilution was increased, the maximum current density decreased. CV is widely used to obtain the voltammetry data. The cyclic voltamograms provides the information of the redox reaction and adsorption/desorption effects with the applied potential. In addition, the stability, reversibility, and electron transfer kinetics can be determined using the CV peak behavior. CV can also be used to determine the electron stoichiometry of a system, the diffusion coefficient of an analyte, and the formal reduction potential of an analyte as an identification tool [13]. The CV was measured at a scan rate of 100 mV/s between –0.6 V to +0.6 V. The CV results showed the irreversible curves of the reduction reaction using electrons from the glucose oxidation reaction governed by Laccase. No inverse peak was observed as

Fig. 2(B) shows the Nyquist plot of the EIS of the EFC system using the hydrolysate. The results of the EIS for the hydrolysates showed a similar tendency of impedance. The semicircle portion at high frequency and linear portion (Warburg impedance) at a low frequency were observed. The resistance of charge-transfer (Rct) and the electrolyte resistance (Rs) could be calculated using the diameter of the semicircle in the plot and the intercept on the real axis of the semicircle [18]. At 2, 1, and 0.5% glucose samples of the EFC system, the Rct values were found to be 5.4, 3.5, and 3.9k Ω, respectively. Some properties of hydrolysate affect the charge-transfer on the electrode surface. The electrodes were modified by assembling GO/Co/chitosan composites and redox enzymes on the surface for power generation. Then, Rct is affected by both the property of electrode and modification of the electrode surface [19]. The enzyme loading on the electrode surface could be verified by comparison of the Rct values [20]. Because the identical sets of electrodes were used for the EIS measurements, hydrolysate is the strong influential factor towards the charge transfer. The hydrolysate liquid after the DAP of lignocellulosic biomass involves various undefined materials derived from the biomass by hydrolysis and pyrolysis.

    These values may be different for different variables such as electrolyte and cathode material. Further the result on corrosion resistance was also interesting. They found significant 60-80% improvement of corrosion resistance after electropolishing [2]. Kao and Hocheng (2003) have reported using grey relational analysis optimizing the electropolishing of 316L stainless steel with multiple performance characteristics. Electrolyte was used phosphoric acid, sulphuric acid, glycerin, and water [4].…

    Therefore, the detailed mechanism is not presented in this study. However, many previous studies indicate that the CuO or Cu(III) oxide is essential for the catalytic oxidation of carbohydrates. Therefore, Cu oxide has considerable electrocatalytic activity for the glucose oxidation even better than the pristine Cu. As shown in the Scheme 1, when the Cu NP collides on the inert electrode where the appropriate potential, adaptable for the both the oxidation of Cu and electrocatalytic oxidation of glucose by Cu oxide is applied, the blip plus staircase current response is available by the self-oxidation of Cu NP and electrocatalytic reaction by oxidized Cu NP, respectively. To achieve this, the choice of inert electrode and appropriate potential is important, and Au UME was suitable for this.…

    The catalytic strategies used by chymotrypsin are covalent and acid-base catalysis which are supported by the catalytic triad of serine (covalent catalysis), Histidine and Asparagine (acid-base catalysis). The chymotrypsin catalysis is carried out through two steps the first and faster step being the nucleophilic attack of the carbonyl group at the peptide bond by the serine residue resulting in a covalent modification. The stabilized enzyme intermediate undergoes the slow but essential second step in which water is used to release the covalent bond and regenerate the enzyme. In this case, burst kinetics is examined where the rate limiting step occurs…

    These objectives were met by observing Hydrochloric Acid (HCl), H2SO4 (Sulfuric Acid), NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide), and Ba(OH)2 (Barium hydroxide) titrate together. By using the exact volume that it took for the acids and bases to react with the help of the phenolphthalein indicator the moles of each were able to be compared and concoct an experimental ratio. The phenolphthalein indicator was used to tell exactly when there was a perfect ratio of acid and base in the solution. This was then compared to the theoretical ratio which allowed a percent of error to be calculated. The experimental ratio for the given reactions in this lab were very similar to the theoretical value.…

    The iodine reagent is made by dissolving iodine in water mixed with 0.1 M potassium iodide, the bench iodine solution (What is the Iodine Test). Starch is made of bonds of amylose which is composed of a “straight chain of alpha glucose that are connected by alpha 1a4 glycosidic bonds” (Carbohydrates Test). With liquid food samples, 5 drops of iodine solution is dropped into the test tube. So, when the presence of starch is detected, the solution changes to a blue-black color because the starch-iodide combination absorbs light at different wavelengths, resulting in a strong purple color (Ophardt, Starch and Iodine). This type of reaction is made possible by the formation of polyiodide chains produced between the reaction of starch and iodine.…
