  Abstract  
  Sol-gel derived silica (SiO2) film fabricated onto indium-tin-oxide (ITO) coated glass substrate has been used for self-assembly of cerium oxide (CeO2) nanoparticles to fabricate Nano CeO2-SiO2 nanocomposite. The NanoCeO2-SiO2/ITO electrode has been utilized to immobilize lipase (Lip) via physical adsorption for triglyceride detection. The response studies of Lip/CeO2-SiO2/ITO bioelectrodes carried out using CV reveal the linearity from 50 to 400 mg dl-1 with high sensitivity (2.28 mA mg-1 dl) and stability. A low value of apparent Michaelis-Menten constant (~ 2.4 mM) indicates high enzyme affinity to tributyrin.
