Silver and gold nanoparticles (of average size ∼20-27 nm) were incorporated in PU (Polyurethane), PCLm (Polycaprolactam), PC (polycarbonate) and PMMA (Polymethylmethaacrylate) by swelling and casting methods under ambient conditions. In the latter method the nanoparticle would be present not only on the surface, but also inside the polymer. These… (More)
The mediatorless electroanalytical sensing of sulfide is explored at a range of commercially available graphitic based electrodes namely, edge and basal plane pyrolytic graphite (EPPGE and BPPGE, respectively), boron-doped diamond (BDDE), glassy carbon (GCE) and screen-printed electrodes (SPE). The electrochemical performance is evaluated in terms of… (More)
We report a novel electrochemical strategy to probe the microenvironment of live cells in real time in terms of its extracellular pH. This approach allowed highly sensitive detection of cancer cells down to five cells. Utility of the sensor for evaluating the efficacy of glycolysis inhibiting anti-cancer drugs is also demonstrated.
