    • Abstract

       

      An amperometric biosensor for ethanol is described. The sensor uses benzoquinone and ferrocene carboxylic acid as mediators for electron transfer between a quinoprotein, alcohol dehydrogenase and an edge plane pyrolytic graphite electrode. A linear current response proportional to ethanol concentration is observed in the range 1–10 mM.
