Abstract


A spectrophotometric method based on the use of silver nanoparticles is presented for the determination of lipoxygenase activityin cereal grains. The method involves the synthesis of prism silver nanoparticles with a maximum absorption at 752 nm, followedby the abatement of the signal as a consequence of the oxidation produced by hydroperoxides generated in the enzymatic reaction.The quantification of the hydroperoxides produced by reaction of lipoxygenase with linoleic acid allows the determination of theenzyme activity in cereal grains. Under optimal conditions, the linear range of the calibration curve ranges from 1.0 to 5.0 ?M, witha limit of detection of 0.34 ?M. The method was validated comparing the results with those obtained by ferrous-xylenol orangemethod. A relative standard deviation < 5.0% was obtained in all cases and no significant differences were observed (? < 0.05).
