Characterization of different DLC and DLN electrodes for biosensor design

Abstract : Diamond-Like Carbon and Carbon-Like Nanocomposite electrodes, novel materials in the field of biosensors, made with different ratio of sp3/sp2 carbon hybridization or doped with elements such as Ni, Si and W, were characterized electrochemically by cyclic voltammetry and by amperometric measurements towards hydrogen peroxide. SiCAr1 and SiCNi5% were chosen as sensitive transducers for elaboration of amperometric glucose biosensors. Immobilization of glucose oxidase was carried out by cross-linking with glutareldehyde. Measurements were made at a fixed potential + 1.0 V in 40 mM phosphate buffer pH 7.4. SiCAr1 seems to be more sensitive for glucose (0.6875 µA/mM) then SiCNi5% (0.3654 µA/mM). Detections limits were respectively 20 µM and 30 µM. Michaelis-Menten constants for the two electrodes were found around 3 mM. 48% and 79% of the original response for 0.5 mM glucose remained respectively for both electrodes after 10 days.
