Abstract

One of the major areas of study associated with enzyme fuel cells (EFCs) has been identification of redox enzymes with high electron transfer rates that lead to a high power output. The effects of a method of enzyme immobilization by actively turning over glucose on the electrical properties of a fuel cell were evaluated under ambient conditions in attempt to increase the power of an EFC modified with DNA-wrapped single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The anode cyclic voltammetry (CV cycle) electrical properties increased as a result of glucose oxidase (GOD) immobilization by actively turning over glucose. Furthermore, an EFC that employed DNA-wrapped SWNTs and GOD immobilization in conjunction with protection of the active site increased the stability of the cell, which enabled maintenance of a high level of power production (ca. 730-760μWcm-2) for 1 week.
