Özet

Electropolymerized polytyramine film was proposed for determination of uric acid in the presence of ascorbic acid. The influence of electropolymerization conditions on performance of the polytyramine film was examined to obtain the optimal experimental parameters. The voltammetric results demonstrated that polytyramine film obtained at the optimized conditions allowed penetration of large amounts of uric acid while blocking the permeation of electroactive (ascorbic acid, cysteine and oxalic acid) and non-electroactive interferents (lactose, sucrose and urea) through film in PBS. Therefore, it has been claimed that the polymeric film could be used as uric acid-selective membrane over a broad range of interference.
