A simple and ultrasensitive label-free electrochemical impedimetric aptasensor for thrombin based on the cascaded signal amplification was reported. The sandwich system of aptamer/thrombin/aptamer-functionalized Au nanoparticles (Apt-AuNPs) was fabricated as the sensing platform. The change of the interfacial feature of the electrode was characterized by(More)
Polymerized ionic liquid-wrapped carbon nanotubes (PIL-CNTs) were firstly designed for direct electrochemistry and biosensing of redox proteins. The CNTs were coated successfully with polymerized ionic liquid (PIL) layer, as verified by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR)(More)
Hollow nitrogen-doped carbon microspheres (HNCMS) as a novel carbon material have been prepared and the catalytic activities of HNCMS-modified glassy carbon (GC) electrode towards the electro-oxidation of uric acid (UA), ascorbic acid (AA) and dopamine (DA) have also been investigated. Comparing with the bare GC and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) modified GC(More)
A novel one-dimensional (1-D) caterpillar-like manganese dioxide-carbon (MnO(2)-C) nanocomposite has been synthesized by a direct redox reaction between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and permanganate ions for the first time. The as-prepared nanostructured MnO(2)-C composite mainly consisting of ε-MnO(2) nanoflakes had a unique microstructure, high specific(More)
