A one-step method is described for the fluorometric determination of the activity of the enzyme catalase (EC, based on the finding that H2O2 in the europium (III)-tetracycline-hydrogen peroxide system is consumed by catalase. This is accompanied by a large decrease in both fluorescence intensity and decay time. The limit of detection (LOD; at S/N=3) for catalase at 30 °C for a 10-min ...
