In the case of immobilizing of glucose oxidase into polypyrrole (PPy) using electrosynthesis, the glucose oxidase (GOx) forms a coordinate bond with the polymers backbone. However, because of intrinsic insulation and net-chain of the enzyme, the charge transfer and mass transport are obstructed during the film growth. Therefore, the film growth is dull. We synthesized enzyme electrodes by electropolymerization added some organic solvent, such as ethanol and tetrahydrofuran (THF). The formative seeds of film growth was delayed by adding ethanol. The delay was induced by radical transfer between ethanol and pyrrole monomer. The radical transfer reactions shared the contribution of dopants between electrolyte anion and GOx polyanion. This led to increase amount of immobilized the enzyme in PPy. For the UV absorption spectra of synthetic solution before synthesis and after, in the case of ethanol added, the optical density was slightly decreased for the GOx peaks. It suggests amount of GOx in the solution was decreased and amount of GOx in the film was increased.
