Poly-Cobalt[tetrakis(o-aminophenyl)porphyrin] Nanowire and Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube for the Analysis of Hydrogen Peroxide
Abstract:Nanowires of poly-cobalt[tetrakis(o-aminophenyl)porphyrin] (PCoTAPPNW) were fabricated by electrochemical polymerization by the cyclic voltammetric method in anodic aluminum oxide membranes. A glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified by PCoTAPPNW and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) without any binder was investigated with voltammetric methods in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) at pH 7.4. The PCoTAPPNW + SWNT/GCE exhibited strongly enhanced voltammetric and amperometric sensitivity towards hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which shortened the response time (<5 seconds), showed detection limit of 1.0 M and enhanced the sensitivity for H2O2 detection with 194 A mM−1 cm−2. The PCoTAPPNW +SWNT/GCE can be used to monitor H2O2 at very low concentration in physiological pH as an efficient electrochemical H2O2 sensor.
