ABSTRACT This work reports a rapid and sensitive organophosphates (OPs) amperometric biosensor based on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) immobilized on CdS-decorated graphene (CdS-G) nanocomposite. The as-prepared biosensor shows high affinity to acetylthiocholine (ATCl) with a Michaelis-Menten constant (K(m)) value of 0.24 mM. A rapid inhibition time (2 min) is obtained due to the integration of the CdS-G nanocomposite. Based on the inhibition of OPs on the enzymatic activity of the immobilized AChE, and used carbaryl as the model compound, the resulting biosensor exhibits excellent performance for OPs detection including good reproducibility, acceptable stability, and a reliable linear relationship between the inhibition and log[carbaryl] from 2 ng mL⁻¹ up to 2 μg mL⁻¹ with a detection limit of 0.7 ng mL⁻¹,which provides a new promising tool for analysis of enzyme inhibitors.

    ABSTRACT: A novel acetylcholinesterase (AChE) biosensor based on Ag NPs, carboxylic graphene (CGR) and Nafion (NF) hybrid modified glass carbon electrode (GCE) has been successfully developed. Ag NPs-CGR-NF possessed predominant conductivity, catalysis and biocompatibility and provided a hydrophilic surface for AChE adhesion. Chitosan (CS) was used to immobilize AChE on the surface of Ag NPs-CGR-NF/GCE to keep the AChE activities. The AChE biosensor showed favorable affinity to acetylthiocholine chloride (ATCl) and could catalyze the hydrolysis of ATCl with an apparent Michaelis-Menten constant value of 133μM, which was then oxidized to produce a detectable and fast response. Under optimum conditions, the biosensor detected chlorpyrifos and carbaryl at concentrations ranging from 1.0×10(-13) to 1×10(-8)M and from 1.0×10(-12) to 1×10(-8)M. The detection limits for chlorpyrifos and carbaryl were 5.3×10(-14)M and 5.45×10(-13)M, respectively. The developed biosensor exhibited good sensitivity, stability, reproducibility and low cost, thus providing a promising tool for analysis of enzyme inhibitors. This study could provide a simple and effective immobilization platform for meeting the demand of the effective immobilization enzyme on the electrode surface.

    ABSTRACT: The CLDHs as enzyme immobilization matrix was applied to construct highly performance-enhanced AChE biosensor. Graphene-gold nanocomposite was dropped on the surface of the glassy carbon electrode, and greatly improved the conductivity of the modified electrode. Amperometric experiments were performed on a workstation by adopt a conventional three electrode system. The obtained biosensor based on enzyme inhibition for determination of pesticide showed a wide linear range and low detection limit.

    ABSTRACT: A novel visible light photoelectrochemical (PEC) platform coupled with enzyme-inhibition for rapid and sensitive determination of organophosphates (OPs) was constructed based on a dual-functional Cd0.5Zn0.5S-reduced graphene oxide (Cd0.5Zn0.5S-rGO) nanocomposite. Due to the inherent biocompatibility of the Cd0.5Zn0.5S-rGO nanocomposite, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) immobilized on the Cd0.5Zn0.5S-rGO modified electrode can hydrolyze acetylthiocholine chloride into thiocholine, which could increase the photocurrent of the enzyme electrode, and the further inhibition of OPs on the enzyme electrode could decrease the photocurrent response. Based on the notable change in the PEC response of the AChE-Cd0.5Zn0.5S-rGO modified electrode and using Dursban as a model, a simple and effective way for PEC monitoring of OPs is proposed, which showed a wide linear range of 0.001-1 μg mL(-1) with a low detection limit of 0.3 ng mL(-1) (S/N = 3). Moreover, the biosensor was successfully challenged with water samples, demonstrating a new method for rapid and sensitive screening/evaluating exposure to organophosphorus pesticides and other hazardous substances.
