ABSTRACT We describe a new approach for reagentless electrochemical immunoassay sensing in which Au/Pd NPs can be "loaded" onto antibodies to create an electrocatalytic antibody that is sensitive to the oxygen reduction reaction.

    ABSTRACT: In this article we review recent work in our laboratory towards the realization of a multianalyte microelectrode detection platform capable of discriminating chemicals and different biomolecules simultaneously. The functionalization of electrodes with aryl diazonium salts provides an electrically addressable deposition procedure capable of immobilizing a wide range of molecules. We demonstrate control over surface density and electron transfer kinetics as well as the activation of individual electrodes in an array. The direct electrically-addressable immobilization of diazonium-modified proteins is shown to be suitable for the construction of multianalyte immunosensors and the immobilization of horseradish peroxidase leading to the direct electron transfer between the redox enzyme and the electrode. The use of catalytic nanoparticles leads to the construction of a reagent-less immunosensor and the simultaneous detection of DNA and proteins on the same electrode array is demonstrated.

    ABSTRACT: We have demonstrated a binary chemoselective gas sensor using a combination of plasmonic nanohole arrays and a voltage-directed assembly of diazonium chemistry. The employment of a voltage-directed functionalization allows for the realization of a multiplexed sensor. The device was read optically and was fabricated using a combination of electron-beam and conventional lithography; it contains several regions each electrically isolated from each other. We used calibrated gas dosage delivery to confirm the selectivity of the sensor and observed reversible spectral shifts of several nm upon gas exposure. The resulting spectral shift indicates the potential for use in chemical arrayed detection for low concentration gas sensing

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, reduced carboxylic graphene/palladium nanoparticles (rGN-COOH/PdNPs) modified ultramicroelectrode array (UMEA) was investigated and applied in electrochemical determination of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). The UMEAs were fabricated by micro electro-mechanical system technique. The sensitive film of rGN-COOH/PdNPs was prepared by self-assembling of carboxylic graphene (GN-COOH), electroreducing the GN-COOH and electrodepositing the palladium nanoparticles on UMEA. This modification method is suitable to UMEA, which can immobilize the sensitive film on the designed sites and maintain the unique characteristics of UMEA. Compared with the sensitive film of GN-COOH, rGN-COOH and PdNPs, the sensitive film of rGN-COOH/PdNPs showed satisfied electroreduction performance to dissolved oxygen (DO). A BOD microsensor was fabricated based on the rGN-COOH/PdNPs modified UMEA. A good linear range from 1 to 30 mg/L for BOD determination was displayed.
