    • Abstract

       

      An electrochemical method for the determination of lysozyme (LYS) based on its interaction with alizarin red S (ARS) was established by linear sweep voltammetry in this paper. The electrochemical behaviour of ARS with LYS was investigated on a dropping mercury working electrode in 0.2 mol/L pH 4.8 Britton-Robinson (B-R) buffer solution. ARS showed a sensitive second order derivative linear sweep voltammetric reductive peak at -0.42 V (vs SCE). After the addition of LYS, the reductive peak current of ARS decreased without the shift of the reductive peak potential and no new waves appeared, which was due to the formation of a supramolecular complex of ARS with LYS in the solution. The stoichiometry of the ARS-LYS complex was further calculated by the electrochemical data with the results of the binding ratio as 3 : 1 and the binding constant as $2.82 \times 10^{14}$. Under the selected conditions, the decrease of the second order derivative linear sweep voltammetric reductive peak current of ARS was in proportion to the LYS concentration in the range from 0.8 to 35.0 mg/L and the detection limit of LYS was calculated as 0.52 mg/L (3𝜎). Different kinds of LYS samples were detected satisfactorily with this method.
