CuO Nanopetals Based Electrochemical Sensor for Selective Ag+ Measurements
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The electrochemical sensing activity of cupric oxide (CuO) nanopetals was investigated for the detection of silver (I) ions (Ag+. The CuO nanopetals were synthesized on a large area glass substrate by a low-temperature hydrothermal growth process. Structural morphological investigations were carried out using field emission scanning electron microscopy, high resolution transmission electron microscopy, and X-ray diffraction. To check the sensing application of the CuO nanopetals, it was functionalized for selectivity of Ag+. A polymeric membrane with Ag+-selective ionophore was coated on the surface of the CuO nanopetals. CuO nanopetals reveal excellent electrochemical sensing behavior in aqueous solution to selectively detect Ag+. The CuO based sensor exhibits a linear electrochemical response within the concentration range of 1 μM to 100 mM. The functionalized CuO nanopetal based sensor show stable, fast response and high sensitivity for [Ag+]. This work demonstrates a simple technique for sensitive detection of Ag+ and other biochemical species.
