Direct electrochemistry of glucose oxidase (GOx) at an electrochemically reduced graphene oxide-multiwalled carbon nanotubes hybrid (ERGO-MWCNT) modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) has been reported. The π-π stacking interaction operating between the MWCNT and graphene oxide (GO) has been revealed by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. GOx was well(More)
In the present study, multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT)/graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposite was prepared by homogenous dispersion of MWCNT and GO and used for the simultaneous voltammetric determination of dopamine (DA) and paracetamol (PA). The TEM results confirmed that MWCNT walls were wrapped well with GO sheets. The MWCNT/GO nanocomposite showed(More)
In this study, a simple and fast microwave assisted chemical reduction method for the preparation of graphene nanosheet/polyethyleneimine/gold nanoparticle (GNS/PEI/AuNP) composite was developed. PEI, a cationic polymer, was used both as a non-covalent functionalizing agent for the graphene oxide nanosheets (GONSs) through electrostatic interactions in the(More)
We described the preparation of a novel nanobiocomposite, reduced graphene oxide- multiwalled carbon nanotubes-platinum nanoparticles/myoglobin (RGO-MWCNT-Pt/Mb) for the direct electrochemistry of myoglobin and its application towards determination of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and nitrite (NO2(-)). RGO-MWCNT-Pt nanocomposite has been prepared by simple(More)
Biopolymer pectin stabilized gold nanoparticles were prepared at graphene and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (GR-MWNTs/AuNPs) and employed for the determination of glucose. The formation of GR-MWNTs/AuNPs was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, UV-vis and FTIR spectroscopy methods. Glucose oxidase (GOx) was successfully immobilized(More)
A highly selective amperometric sensor was developed for the trace level determination of hydrazine at bismuth nanoparticles (Bi) decorated graphene nanosheets (GR) composite film modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE). GR-Bi nanocomposite has been successfully prepared via simple and facile chemical reduction approach and its structure was characterized by(More)
We described a simple and facile chemical reduction strategy for the preparation of graphene (GR)-cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc) composite and explored it for the enzymatic determination of glucose. CoPc is an active mediator and electrocatalysts for the immobilization of GOx and determination of glucose. However, it is not stable on the electrode surface and(More)
We prepared an off-on fluorometric probe, DPF1, by incorporating the concept of autoinductive signal amplification into its molecular design. In the presence of fluoride, DPF1 undergoes a cascade of self-immolative reactions concomitant with unmasking fluorogenic coumarin, which results in the ejection of two fluoride ions. These fluoride ions are(More)
An electrochemical latent redox probe, SAF 5 was designed, synthesized and characterized. A rapid and sensitive solution-based assay was demonstrated for salicylate hydroxylase (SHL). In presence of NADH at aerobic conditions, SHL catalyzed the decarboxylative hydroxylation of SAF and released a redox reporter amino ferrocene (AF 6). The release of AF 6 was(More)
We have developed a sensitive electrochemical sensor for Organophosphorus pesticide methyl parathion (MP) using silver particles supported graphene nanoribbons (Ag@GNRs). The Ag@GNRs nanocomposite was prepared through facile wet chemical strategy and characterized by TEM, EDX, XRD, Raman, UV-visible, electrochemical and impedance spectroscopies. The Ag@GNRs(More)
