We report on an amperometric biosensor that is based on a nanocomposite of carbon nanotubes (CNT), a nano-thin plasma-polymerized film (PPF), and glucose oxidase (GOx) as an enzyme model. A mixture of the GOx and a CNT film is sandwiched with 10-nm-thick acetonitrile PPFs. Under PPF layer was deposited onto a sputtered gold electrode. To facilitate the(More)
We report a novel approach to fabrication of an amperometric biosensor with an enzyme, a plasma-polymerized film (PPF), and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The CNTs were grown directly on an island-patterned Co/Ti/Cr layer on a glass substrate by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The as-grown CNTs were subsequently treated by nitrogen plasma,(More)
Adsorption of glucose oxidase (GOD) onto plasma-polymerized thin films (PPF) with nanoscale thickness was characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM), quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), and electrochemical measurements. The PPF surface is very flat (less than 1-nm roughness), and its properties (charge and wettability) can be easily changed while(More)
A novel design is described for an amperometric biosensor based on NAD(P)-dependent glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) combined with a plasma-polymerized thin film (PPF). The GDH is sandwiched between several nanometer thick acetonitrile PPFs on a sputtered gold electrode (PPF/GDH/PPF/Au). The lower PPF layer plays the role as an interface between enzyme and(More)
We report on a novel fabrication approach of amperometric biosensor based on multilayer films containing carbon nanotubes (CNT), a nano-thin plasma-polymerized film (PPF), electron transfer mediator phenothiazine (PT), and enzyme glucose dehydrogenase (GDH). The configuration of the electrochemical electrode is sequentially composed of sputtered gold,(More)
We propose an electron transfer-mediated amperometric enzyme biosensor based on plasma-polymerized thin film of dimethylaminomethylferrocene (DMAMF) on a sputtered gold electrode. The DMAMF plasma-polymerized film is deposited directly onto the surface of the electrode under dry conditions. The resulting thin film not only has redox sites but also is(More)
Simultaneous electrochemical determination of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) and ascorbic acid (AA) at a carbon nanotube electrode is presented. The discrimination of NADH and AA is conducted with the difference of peak potential by differential pulse voltammetry. Two well-distinguished anodic peaks, +0.56 and +0.26 V, due to NADH and AA are(More)
