3D-porous carbon nanomaterials and their hybrids are ideal materials for energy storage and conversion, biomedical research, and wearable sensors, yet today's fabrication methods are too complicated and inefficient to implement into miniaturized systems. Instead, it is shown here that 3D-carbon nanofibrous electrodes of various designs, shapes and sizes, on flexible substrates, under ambient conditions and without complicated equipment and procedures can simply be "written" via a one-step laser-induced carbonization on electrospun nanofibers...

Prostate cancer is the second most common malignant type of cancer in men and fifth among fatal types of cancer. Because drugs used in prostate cancer, such as in many other drugs, are also present in low concentrations in body fluids, it is important to develop highly sensitive and sensitive methods that allow the correct amount of prostate cancer drugs to be determined at low concentrations in biological specimens. Electrochemical approaches for the quantitation of prostate cancer drugs have several advantages over other common techniques, including sensitive, selective, fast, broad linear concentration range...

A sensitive and selective TAPB-DMTP-COF (TAPB, 1,3,5-tris(4-aminophenyl)benzene; DMTP, 2,5-dimethoxyterephaldehyde; COF, covalent organic framework) modified carbon paste electrode was evaluated as a novel electrochemical sensor for the determination of lead in an aqueous medium. Lead was accumulated on the TAPB-DMTP-COF surface by the complexation with the amine groups, and detected by differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry. Due to the distinct structure features of COF, the resulting sensor revealed a fast electron transfer rate and outstanding adsorption capacity for lead...

The development of portable and user-friendly sensing platforms is a hot topic in the field of analytical chemistry. Among others, electroanalytical approaches exhibit a high amenability for reaching this purpose, i.e. the commercial strips for diabetes care are an obvious success. However, providing fully-integrated and user-friendly methods is the leitmotiv. In this work we evaluate the use of a disposable pipette tip, opportunely configured, to realize the first example of lab-on-a-tip. The combination of a pipette tip, wire electrodes, and cotton wool filter, highlights the suitability of producing a novel one-shot electroanalytical platform that does not require expertise-required tasks...

Carbon Black (CB) has acquired a prominent position as a carbon nanomaterial for the development of electrochemical sensors and biosensors due to its low price and extraordinary electrochemical and physical properties. These properties are highly dependent on the surface chemistry and thus, the effect of functionalization has been widely studied for different applications. Meanwhile, the influence of CB functionalization over its properties for electroanalytical applications is still being poorly explored. In this study, we describe the use of chemically functionalized CB Vulcan XC 72R for the development of sensitive electrochemical biosensors...

A comparative study of two types of silver nanoparticles was investigated. The effect of the surface chemistry of the studied silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on their localized surface plasmon resonance was utilized for the quantitative determination of muscle relaxant tizanidine drug. The studied AgNPs are classified according to the type of stabilizing agent used in their synthesis into electrostatically and sterically stabilized AgNPs. The electrostatically-stabilized AgNPs (AA AgNPs) were prepared using ascorbic acid as both reducing and protective agents in alkaline medium...

Decoration of leaf-like zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-L) with Au nanoparticles (NPs) by a simple self-assembly method was described in this work. The materials were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectra, N2 adsorption, and thermogravimetric analysis. Acetaminophen (AP) is most commonly referred to as an over-the-counter antipyretic and analgesic, which is a key factor in relieving fever and pain. It is particular significant to take efforts and conduct research for the development of reliable methods to detect the AP...

Free-standing, highly flexible and foldable supercapacitor electrodes were fabricated through the spray-coating assisted layer-by-layer assembly of Ti3C2Tx (MXene) nanoflakes together with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on electrospun polycaprolactone (PCL) fiber networks. The open structure of the PCL network and the use of MWCNTs as spacers not only limit the restacking of Ti3C2Tx flakes but also increase the accessible surface of the active materials, facilitating fast diffusion of electrolyte ions within the electrode...

The unique electronic and chemical structures of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have well enabled their applications in electrochemistry and electroanalytical chemistry; however, the difficulty in reproducibly confining CNTs onto substrate electrodes, particularly onto microelectrodes, still remains to be addressed. In this study, we develop a method to reproducibly confine single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) onto carbon fiber microelectrodes (CFEs) with electrophoretic deposition (EPD) for in vivo measurement of ascorbate...

Scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) has evolved from an electrochemical specialist tool to a broadly used electroanalytical surface technique, which has experienced exciting developments for nanoscale electrochemical studies in recent years. Several companies now offer commercial instruments, and SECM has been used in a broad range of applications. SECM research is frequently interdisciplinary, bridging areas ranging from electrochemistry, nanotechnology, and materials science to biomedical research...

Nanodiamond particles form agglomerates in the dry powder state and this poses limitation to the accessibility of their diamond-like core thus dramatically impacting their technological advancement. In this work, we report de-agglomeration of nanodiamond (ND) by using a facile technique namely, salt-assisted ultrasonic de-agglomeration (SAUD). Utilizing ultrasound energy and ionic salts (sodium chloride and sodium acetate), SAUD is expected to break apart thermally treated nanodiamond aggregates (~50-100 nm) and produce an aqueous slurry of de-aggregated stable colloidal nanodiamond dispersions by virtue of ionic interactions and electrostatic stabilization...

Graphdiyne (GDY) is recently synthesized two-dimensional carbon allotrope with hexagonal rings cross-linked by diacetylene through introducing butadiyne linkages (-C≡C-C≡C-) to form 18-C hexagons and is emerging to be fundamentally interesting and particularly useful in various research fields. In this study, we for the first time find that GDY can be used as an electrode material with reactivity tunable by electronic states and surface chemistry of GDY. To demonstrate this, GDY is oxidized into graphdiyne oxide (GDYO) that is then chemically and electrochemically reduced into chemically reduced GDYO (cr-GDYO) and electrochemically reduced GDYO (er-GDYO), respectively...

The future of fuel cells that convert chemical energy to electricity relies mostly on the efficiency of oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) due to its sluggish kinetics. By effectively bypassing the use of organic surfactants, the postsynthesis steps for immobilization onto electrodes, catalytic ink preparation using binders, and the common problem of nanoparticles (NPs) detachment from the supports involved in traditional methodologies, we demonstrate a versatile electrodeposition method for growing anisotropic microstructures directly onto a three-dimensional (3D) carbon felt electrode, using platinum NPs as the elementary building blocks...

Due to the negative impact of nitrate and nitrite on human health, their presence exceeding acceptable levels is not desired in foodstuffs. Thus, nitrite determination at low concentrations is a major challenge in electroanalytical chemistry, which can be achieved by fast, cheap, and safe electrochemical sensors. In this work, the working electrode (Au) was functionalized with p-aminothiophenol (p-ATP) and modified with gold nanoparticles (Au-NPs) to manufacture the final (Au/p-ATP-Aunano) electrode in a two-step procedure...
