Paper Abstract

Glycerol concentrations are measured using a novel photo reaction between an excited fluorophore and NADH, the latter being generated due to the reduction of NAD+ in an enzymatic reaction between glycerol dehydrogenase (GlDH) and glycerol. The results are treated using a modified Stern-Volmer type relation and at equilibrium, a SIQ quenching constant of 9.78 (+/- 2.05) M-1 is obtained for the substrate induced quenching of thionine by glycerol. The reported method was investigated over the glycerol concentration range of 0 - 100 mM and offers a detection limit of 0.4 mM.
