Non-enzymatic biosensing of glucose based on silver nanoparticles synthesized from Ocimum tenuiflorum leaf extract and silver nitrate
MetadataShow full item record
An enzyme-free glucose sensor developed based on silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) via bio-mediated route using Ocimum tenuiflorum leaves extract. The Ag NPs were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, Particle size analyzer (PSA), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Energy-dispersive X-ray (EDAX) spectroscopy, and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), to study structural, optical and morphological properties. The electrocatalytic activity of Ag NPs towards the oxidation of glucose in the 0.1 M NaOH electrolyte solution was analyzed. The Ag NPs was coated on Glassy carbon electrode (GCE) and reports indicating the outstanding capability such as high sensitivity (895.8 ?AmM?1cm?2), linear range (1?8.9 mM), response time (<4s), low detection limit (0.0048 ?M, S/N = 3), long-term stability, reproducibility, repeatability, and selectivity of the sensor. Therefore, the bio-synthesized Ag NPs can markedly helpful to fabricate non-enzymatic, sustainable, simple, low cost, and eco-friendly glucose monitoring devices.
