Title: PdCuPt Nanocrystals With Multi-branches for Enzyme-free Glucose Detection

Abstract

By carefully controlling the synthesis condition, branched PtCu bimetallic templates were synthesized in aqueous solution. After the galvanic replacement reaction between PtCu templates and the Pt precursors, PdCuPt trimetallic nanocrystals with branched structures were obtained. Owing to the open structure and the optimized composition, the electrochemical experimental results reveal that the PdCuPt trimetallic nanocrystals exhibit high electrocatalytic activity, selectivity and stability for the oxidation of glucose in alkaline solution. In details, a sensitivity of 378 μA/mM/cm2 and a detection limit of 1.29 μM can be achieved. The good electrocatalytic performance should be attributed to the unique branched nanostructure as well as the synergistic effect among metals. The superior catalytic properties suggest that these nanocrystals are promising for enzyme-free detection of glucose.

  • The effect of device architecture upon the response of printable enzymatic glucose sensors based on poly(3-hexythiophene) (P3HT) organic thin film transistors is presented. The change in drain current is used as the basis for glucose detection and we show that significant improvements in drain current response time can be achieved by modifying the design of the sensor structure. In particular, we show that eliminating the dielectric layer and reducing the thickness of the active layer reduce the device response time considerably. The results are in good agreement with a diffusion based model of device operation, where an initial rapid dedopingmore » process is followed by a slower doping of the P3HT layer from protons that are enzymatically generated by glucose oxidase (GOX) at the Nafion gate electrode. The fitted diffusion data are consistent with a P3HT doping region that is close to the source-drain electrodes rather than located at the P3HT:[Nafion:GOX] interface. Finally, we demonstrate that further improvements in sensor structure and morphology can be achieved by inkjet-printing the GOX layer, offering a pathway to low-cost printed biosensors for the detection of glucose in saliva.« less
  • A single layer of oxygen-deficient cerium oxide nanoparticles (CNPs) are immobilized on microscopic glass slide using poly(4-vinylpyridine) (PVP) self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). A specific colorimetric property of CNPs when reacted with hydrogen peroxide allows for the direct, single-step peroxide detection which can be used in medical diagnosis and explosives detection. Multiple PVP-CNP immobilized layers improve sensitivity of detection and the sensor can be regenerated for reuse.
  • We present a high power, widely tunable, continuous wave external cavity quantum cascade laser designed for infrared vibrational spectroscopy of molecules exhibiting broadband and single line absorption features. The laser source exhibits single mode operation with a tunability up to 303 cm{sup −1} (∼24% of the center wavelength) at 8 μm, with a maximum optical output power of 200 mW. In combination with off-axis integrated output spectroscopy, trace-gas detection of broadband absorption gases such as acetone was performed and a noise equivalent absorption sensitivity of 3.7 × 10{sup −8 }cm{sup −1 }Hz{sup −1/2} was obtained.
