abstract

  • Polypropylene and polyethylene surfaces are activated by introducing an active functional group through 1-fluoro-2 nitro-4-azidobenzene by UV irradiation. Horseradish peroxidase and glucose oxidase are immobilized onto the activated surfaces, simply by incubating the enzymes at 37 degrees C. When untreated surfaces are used, insignificant immobilization of the enzymes is observed.
