A single compartment biofuel cell (BFC) based on an anode and a cathode powered by the same fuel glucose is reported. Glucose oxidase (GOx) from Aspergillus niger was applied as a glucose consuming biocatalyst for both anode and cathode of the BFC. The 5-amino-1,10-phenanthroline modified graphite rod electrode (GRE) with cross-linked GOx was used as the bioanode, and the GRE with co-immobilised horseradish peroxidase and GOx was exploited as the biocathode of the BFC. The open-circuit voltage of the designed BFC exceeded 450mV and a maximal power density of 3.5 mu W/cm2 was registered at a cell voltage of 300mV.
