Abstract: Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was immobilized on glassy carbon electrode (GCE) surface by konjac glucomannan (KGM). HRP entrapped in the KGM film underwent fast direct transfer-electron reactions in water-organic solvent mixtures. The electrocatalysis of peroxides, such as hydrogen peroxide, cumene hydroperoxide, t-butyl hydroperoxide, and 2-butanone peroxide, by the immobilized HRP was also explored. Stability and reproducibility of the modified electrode made it possible to determine the organic peroxides.

Key words: Horseradish peroxidase, Electrochemistry, Peroxide
