A non-enzymatic approach towards cholesterol detection is presented here, exploiting the electrochemical non-enzymatic route of sensing which has a distinct advantage over other conventional enzymatic processes. Chemically converted Graphene modified with β-CD, being hydrophilic, electroactive and high surface area material, provides a platform for the(More)
