Paper Abstract

Laccase - based biosensors are important for the selective determination of the phenolic compounds in the environmental matrices. The features of the enzyme immobilisation process and the characteristics of the inorganic porous matrix adsorbed on the electrode surface are both important for establishing the biosensor performances. This work presents the synthesis and physical-chemical characteristics of new hybrid materials based on iron containing layered double hydroxides / laccase. XRD and TGA-DTA analyses give information about the structural characteristics and thermal behaviour of the tested hybrids. The SEM images show the presence of a well crystallized texture of organized ensembles of platelets-like particles stacking on top of one another. The presence of iron in the substituted clay matrix is able to give rise to the specific redox properties that can be further used to tailor not only the laccase immobilisation process but also the biological sensing response of the biohybrid-transducer device.
