A novel label-free amperometric immunosensor is proposed for the ultrasensitive detection of zearalenone (ZEN) based on mesoporous carbon (MC) and trimetallic nanorattles (core/shell particles with movable cores encapsulated in the shells). The nanorattles are composed of special Au-core and imperfect AgPt-shell structure (Au@AgPt). The Au@AgPt nanorattles are loaded onto the MC by physical adsorption. The structure of the Au@AgPt nanorattles was characterized by using scanning electron… CONTINUE READING
