ZnO Nanonails: Synthesis and Their Application as Glucose Biosensor
Abstract:Well-crystallized zinc oxide nanonails were grown in a high density by thermal evaporation process and were used as supporting matrixes for glucose oxidase (GOx) immobilization to construct efficient glucose biosensor. The GOx attached to the surfaces of ZnO nanonails had more spatial freedom in its orientation, which facilitated the direct electron transfer between the active sites of immobilized GOx and electrode surface. The fabricated biosensor showed a high sensitivity of 24.613 A cm–2 mM–1 with a response time less than 10 s. Moreover, it shows a linear range from 0.1 to 7.1 mM with a correlation coefficient of R = 0.9937 and detection limit of 5 M.
