A new biosensor or protein label-free sensor composed of 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphates (BMIMPF6)-human serum albumin (HSA) film on glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was produced. Unfortunately, the native proteins themselves are often unstable in physiological conditions. Here, we introduced conjugation with ionic liquid (IL) such as BMIMPF6 which improved the stability and binding affinity of protein onto GCE. A rapid, simple and reliable method for the chiral discrimination and real time protein binding studies of fenoprofen enantiomers with HSA was developed by hyphenating ionic liquid albumin glassy carbon (ILAGC) biosensor with differential pulse cathodic stripping voltammetry under physiological conditions. The electrochemical behavior of chiral fenoprofen was monitored by cyclic voltammetry, from which large response was obtained from l-fenoprofen. The surface coverage of fenoprofen enantiomers was calculated by double potential-step chronocoulometry. The binding constants of chiral fenoprofen with HSA were estimated to be 3.2×10(5)±0.3Lmol(-1) and 0.8×10(4)±0.4Lmol(-1) for l- and d-fenoprofen, respectively giving acceptable precision (SD ≤ 0.4) and good agreement with the literature values. The competitive interactions of ibuprofen with fenoprofen enantiomers-HSA were studied giving a significant decreasing in the binding degrees of analytes to HSA. The reciprocal competitive experiments indicated that l-fenoprofen replaced d-fenoprofen from HSA. The proposed electrochemical biosensor holds great potential for chiral discrimination and real time binding studies of drugs with protein.
