A novel method for estimating triglycerides is reported. Porous silicon, prepared from p-type (100) crystalline silicon was thermally oxidized and used to immobilise lipase, an enzyme, which hydrolyses triglycerides resulting in the formation of fatty acids. This causes a change in the pH of the solution. Enzyme solution-oxidized porous silicon-crystalline silicon structure was used to detect changes in pH during the hydrolysis of tributyrin as a shift in the capacitance-voltage (C-V… CONTINUE READING
