Article

Summary

A technique for the determination of glucose in molasses-based alcoholic fermentation broths using an enzyme electrode was assessed. Electrochemical interference produced during the alcoholic fermentation was measured as glucose. An enzymatically inactive membrane discriminates between actual glucose and electrochemical interference.
