A new optical sensor for urea determination is presented. It is based on the enzymatic reaction with urease, which is first photoimmobilized with polyacrylamide onto a chemically polymerized polypyrrole (PPy) film. The main advantage of this sensor is that no indicator dye or pH indicator is needed, because PPy itself acts as the support and the indicator. These PPy films show an absorbance ...
