The influence of structure and composition of a reverse SDS microemulsion on enzymatic activities and electrical conductivities

Bauduin, Pierre; Touraud, Didier; Kunz, Werner; Savelli, Marie-Pierre; Pulvin, Sylviane; Ninham, Barry


The activity of the enzyme horse radish peroxidase (HRP) is studied in a series of reverse microemulsions composed of dodecane, aqueous buffer, sodium dodecylsufate (SDS) and alcohols of the homologous series 1-butanol to 1-octanol. The HRP catalyzed reaction is the oxidation of a classical water soluble substrate, the 2,2-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) diammonium salt (ABTS) by hydrogen peroxide. In parallel electrical conductivity measurements are performed on the same...[Show more]
