An electrochemical sensor for the sensitive and selective detection of cysteine is proposed based on a gold nanoparticle (AuNP)–iron(III) phthalocyanine (FePc) modified graphite paste electrode. The sensor was characterised using scanning electron microscopy (SEM/EDX), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Cyclic voltammetry studies demonstrated that the electrochemical behaviour of cysteine at the AuNP–FePc modified graphite paste electrode is considerably improved compared to both the blank (unmodified) and FePc-modified graphite paste electrodes. The enhancement of the anodic redox signal for cysteine was due to a catalytic effect of gold nanoparticles which was investigated using three different graphite paste electrodes − 0.02, 0.055 and 0.11 wt% Au nanoparticles, each with a fixed quantity of FePc (5 wt%). The sensor fabricated using 0.055 wt% AuNPs exhibited optimum sensitivity as examined via differential pulse voltammetry measurements with an analytical range of 50–1000 μM and a LOD of 0.27 μM. The sensor was utilised for the determination of cysteine in pharmaceutical preparations.

Cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPC) compounds have been reported to provide electrocatalytic performances towards a substantial number of analytes. In these configurations, electrodes are typically constructed via drop casting the CoPC onto a supporting electrode substrate, while in other cases the CoPC complex is incorporated within the ink of a screen-printed sensor, providing a one-shot economical and disposable electrode configuration. In this paper we critically compare CoPC modified electrodes pr...

Abstract In this work, we designed a novel electrochemical sensing platform based on graphene (Gr)/copper(II) phthalocyanine-tetrasulfonic acid tetrasodium salt (CuPc)/polyaniline(PANI) nanocomposites. The prepared composites were used to modify screen printed electrodes (SPE) for selective determination of ascorbic acid (AA) in presence of dopamine (DA) and uric acid (UA). Copper phthalocyanine was immobilized on graphene sheets by π-π interaction by electrolytical exfoliation and resulting CuP...

The electrochemical behavior of cysteine and cystine on carbon-paste electrodes modified with Fe(II), Co(II), Ni(II), and Cu(II) phthalocyanines is studied. Metal phthalocyanines exhibit catalytic activity in the electrooxidation of cysteine and cystine and in the reduction of cystine. The best catalyst is the cobalt complex. In the electrooxidation of cysteine, the catalysts are electrogenerated complex species of Co(II)Pc or Co(III)Pc+, and in the oxidation of cystine, oxidized or reduced form...

A concentration-function approach to vitamin C (ascorbate) has yielded new physiology and pharmacology discoveries. To determine the range of vitamin C concentrations possible in humans, pharmacokinetics studies were conducted. They showed that when vitamin C is ingested by mouth, plasma and tissue concentrations are tightly controlled by at least 3 mechanisms in healthy humans: absorption, tissue accumulation, and renal reabsorption. A 4th mechanism, rate of utilization, may be important in dis...

The electrocatalytic oxidation of L-cysteine (CySH) was studied on cobalt hexacyanoferrate nanoparticles with a core-shell structure (iron(III) oxide core-cobalt hexacyanoferrate shell) using cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry. Voltammetric studies represented two quasi-reversible redox transitions for the nanoparticles in phosphate buffer solution (pH 7.4). In the presence of CySH, the anodic peak current of the Fe(II)/Fe(III) transition was increased, followed by a decrease in the corres...

Materials that display aggregation induced emission (AIE) can offer large contrast ratio for highly sensitive fluorescence based applications such as sensing and imaging. Conventional AIE chromophores are generally based on improved emission quantum yield due to reduced nonradiative decay rates by restriction of intramolecular motion. In this work we present another type of AIE phenomenon with a totally different working mechanism. It is based on aggregation induced plasmon coupling of metal nan...

A copper(II)-based two-dimensional metal-organic framework with nanosheet structure (CuBDC NS) that possesses peroxidase (POx) mimicking activity was prepared. In the presence of hydrogen peroxide, the system catalyses the oxidation of terephthalic acid to a blue-fluorescent product (excitation = 315 nm; emission = 425 nm). Pyrophosphate has a very strong affinity for Cu2+ ion and blocks the POx-mimicking activity of the CuBDC NS. If, however, inorganic pyrophosphatase is present, the POx mimick...
