    • Synthesis of silver nanoparticles-decorated FePO4 nanosphere at a gas-liquid interface for the electrochemical detection of Hydrogen peroxide


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Silver nanoparticles were prepared by chemical reduction of acetaldehyde gas in the absence ofprotective gas, and Ag/Fe$PO_{4}$ nanocomposites were synthesised by modified silver mirror reaction at a gasliquidinterface. A hydrogen peroxide $(H_{2}O_{2})$ electrochemical sensor was constructed through immobilizing Ag/Fe$PO_{4}$ nanocomposites on gold (Au) electrode. The morphology and composition of the nanocompositeswere characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy(EDS). The electrochemical investigations of the sensor indicated that it exhibited excellent analytical performancewith a wide linear range from $3.0 \times 10^{-5}$and $1.1 \times 10^{-2}mol $L^{-1}$ a low detection limit of 4.7μmol.$L^{-1} at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3. Meanwhile, it also showed acceptable reproducibility and anti-interference ability.This study may provide a new method for the synthesis of highly dispersed metal nanoparticles which mightbe used in other related fields.
