Studies of a ‘blue’ copper oxidase electrocatalyst

Abstract:

This thesis concerns the electrochemical investigation of high-potential laccases. These multicopper oxidases are efficient electrocatalysts for the dioxygen reduction reaction.

A method for stabilising laccase on a graphite electrode was established. The method involved modification of the graphite surface by diazonium coupling of a 2-anthracene molecule. A laccase ‘film’ adsorbed on this modified surface remained stable for over two months and, typically, the current density for d...
