The first amperometric flow analyzer, based on the biosensor concept, capable of determining total glucosinolates in real samples, is described. Myrosinase was immobilized on aminopropyl-modified controlled pore glass, which was then used for the construction of a packed-bed reactor. Myrosinase catalyzes the hydrolysis of glucosinolates (sinigrin) to glucose (among the other products), which is then oxidized by the action of glucose oxidase to produce hydrogen peroxide. The glucose enzyme electrode is based on a multimembrane architecture and was mounted on an amperometric flow cell (hydrogen peroxide detection at a platinum anode poised at +0.65 V vs Ag/AgCl/3M KCl). Different membrane types and different activation procedures were tested. The system was optimized to various working parameters, either as a glucose electrode or as a glucosinolate analyzer. The interference effect of various compounds was also investigated. Application of the method to real samples was carried out using glucose/glucose, hydrolyzed sinigrin and glucose/sinigrin solution as calibrators of the glucose electrode and the glucosinolate analyzer. Deviations due to the enantioselectivity of glucose oxidase to the beta-glucose anomer were observed, and a data elaboration protocol is proposed. The possibility of the simultaneous determination of glucose and glucosinolates is also demonstrated. (EN)
