A titania film with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was immobilized on indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes to act as a biosensor of hydrogen peroxide via the self-assembling and sol-gel route. The film was characterized by the atomic functional microscopy, electrochemical and UV-vis spectroscopy methods. The resulting biosensor exhibited fast amperometric response and good stability to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The linear range for H2O2 determination was from 2×10-6 to 1.45×10-3 M, with a detection limit of 4×10-6 M based on S/N=3. The apparent Michaelis-Menten constant of the biosensor to H2O2 was estimated to be 1.5 mM, showing the HRP on the films had the higher biologic activities.
