The preparation of sulfite biosensor by immobilization of sulfite oxidase on a glassy carbon electrode coated with mercury thin film is described. Dissolved oxygen can be readily reduced at the glassy carbon electrode coated with mercury thin film. The working principle of the biosensor was based on monitoring decrease in the peak current due to the depletion in dissolved oxygen concentration according to the reaction of sulfite oxidase.
