Example text

Nafion was used to solubilize the SWCNTs and it also displayed strong interactions with Pt nanoparticles to form a network that connected Pt nanoparticles to the electrode surface. 1 mA/mM is obtained for this construct. An even higher sensitivity of 256 mA/mM is reported when Cu nanoparticles (4 to 8 nm in diameter) were used [120]. In addition to glucose, dopamine is another molecule of clinical interest, as a deficiency of dopamine in the brain is believed to cause schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease.

Because the enzyme is embedded deep within the shell, it cannot be oxidized or reduced at an electrode at any potential. The possibility of direct electron transfer between enzymes and electrode surfaces could result in the development of superior reagentless biosensing devices, as it eliminates the need for co-substrates or mediators and allows efficient transduction of the biorecognition event. In fact, both Gooding’s [70] and Willner’s [71] groups have reported the direct electrochemistry of enzymes and proteins at CNT-modified electrodes.
