    Abstract

    Reports that globular proteins could enhance the interference blocking ability of the PPD (poly(o-phenylenediamine) layer used as a permselective barrier in biosensor design, prompted this study where a variety of modifying agents were incorporated into PPD during its electrosynthesis on Pt-Ir electrodes. Trapped molecules, including fibrous proteins and ß-cyclodextrin, altered the polymer/modifier composite selectivity by affecting the sensitivity to both H2O2 (signal molecule in many enzyme-based biosensors) and the archetypal interference species, ascorbic acid. A comparison of electrochemical properties of Pt and a Pt-Ir alloy suggests that the benefits of the latter, more rigid, metal can be exploited in PPD-based biosensor design without significant loss of backward compatibility with studies involving pure Pt.
