Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and their derivatives with well-defined structures and compositions show great potential for wide applications such as sensors, catalysis, energy storage, and conversion, etc. However, poor electric conductivity and large volume expansion are main obstacles for their utilization in energy storage, e.g., lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors. Herein, a facile strategy is proposed for embedding the MOFs, e.g., ZIF-67 and MIL-88 into polyacrylonitrile fibers, which is further used as a template to build a 3D interconnected conductive carbon necklace paper...

In this work, we present a dual-functional sensor that can perform surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) based identification and electrochemical (EC) quantification of analytes in liquid samples. A lithography-free reactive ion etching process was utilized to obtain nanostructures of high aspect ratios distributed homogeneously on a 4-inch fused silica wafer. The sensor was made up of three-electrode array, obtained by subsequent e-beam evaporation of Au on nanostructures in selected areas through a shadow mask...

Many debilitating neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders are characterized by dopamine neurotransmitter dysregulation. Monitoring subsecond dopamine release accurately and for extended, clinically relevant timescales is a critical unmet need. Especially valuable has been the development of electrochemical fast-scan cyclic voltammetry implementing microsized carbon fiber probe implants to record fast millisecond changes in dopamine concentrations. Nevertheless, these well-established methods have only been applied in primates with acutely (few hours) implanted sensors...

In this study, we aim to design a simple and effective electrochemical DNA biosensor based on a carbon paste electrode modified with ds-DNA/poly(L-cysteine)/Fe3O4 nanoparticles-graphene oxide (ds-DNA/p(L-Cys)/Fe3O4 NPs-GO/CPE) for sensitive detection of adenine (A) and guanine (G). The electrocatalytic oxidation of A and G on the electrode was explored by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) and cyclic voltammetry (CV). This sensor shows separated and well-defined peaks for A and G, by which one can determine these biological bases individually or simultaneously...

Based on the target-induced catalytic hairpin assembly and bimetallic catalyst, the enzyme-free recycling amplification strategy for sensitive detection of prostate specific antigen (PSA) has been designed. The aptamer and its complementary DNA (C-apt) are modified on the magnetic particles. The aptamer-PSA binding event can release the C-apt that triggers the catalytic assembly between hairpin capture DNA and hairpin help DNA. Then the catalytic hairpin assembly leads to cyclic reuse the C-apt and the generation of many opened hairpin capture DNA, which can associate with the prepared Au/Pt-polymethylene blue (PMB) probes to yield electrochemical signal...

The construction of reliable sensors for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) detection gains increasing interest because of its important roles in various enzymatic activities and biological processes. Based on a cascaded, significant signal amplification approach by the integration of the aptazymes and catalytic hairpin assembly (CHA), we have developed a sensitive electrochemical sensor for the detection of ATP. The target ATP leads to the conformational change of the aptazyme sequences and their association with the hairpin substrates to form active aptazymes, in which the hairpin substrates are cyclically cleaved by the metal ion cofactors in buffer to release the enzymatic sequences that can also bind the hairpin substrates to generate active DNAzymes...

Electrochemical sensors now play an important role in analysis and detection of nucleic acids. In this work, we present a novel double-signal technique for electrochemically measuring the sequence and length of the d(CAG)n repeat. The double-signal technique used an electrochemical molecular beacon (a hairpin DNA labeled with ferrocene), which was directly modified on the surface of a gold electrode. While a reporter probe (a DNA sequence labeled with horseradish peroxidase) was hybridized to the target DNA...

A label-free electrochemical miRNA biosensor was developed based on a pyrrolidinyl peptide nucleic acid (acpcPNA)/polypyrrole (PPy)/silver nanofoam (AgNF) modified electrode. The AgNF was electrodeposited as redox indicator on a gold electrode, which was then functionalized with an electropolymerized layer of PPy, a conducting polymer, to immobilize the PNA probes. The fabrication process was investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The biosensor was used to detect miRNA-21, a biomarker abnormally expressed in most cancers...

An electrochemical sensor for detection of beef taste was designed in this study. This sensor was based on the structure of polyvinyl chloride/polypyrrole (PVC/PPy), which was polymerized onto the surface of a platinum (Pt) electrode to form a Pt-PPy-PVC film. Detecting by electrochemical methods, the sensor was well characterized by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and cyclic voltammetry (CV). The sensor was applied to detect 10 rib-eye beef samples and the accuracy of the new sensor was validated by sensory evaluation and ion sensor detection...

Somatostatin (SRIF) is widely distributed throughout the body, and regulates the endocrine system via interactions with various hormones, including the pituitary growth hormone, the thyroid stimulating hormone and the majority of the hormones of the gastrointestinal tract. SRIF is present in the central nervous system (CNS), where it affects rates of neurotransmission, and is also reported to be active in the intestinal tract, with evidence that stressed rats present a significant decrease in antral somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI)...

Aluminum Nitride (AlN) has been long time being regarded as highly interesting material for developing sensing applications (including biosensors and implantable sensors). AlN, due to its appealing electronic properties, is envisaged lately to serve as a multi-functional biosensing platform. Although generally exploited for its intrinsic piezoelectricity, its surface morphology and mechanical performance (elastic modulus, hardness, wear, scratch and tensile resistance to delamination, adherence to the substrate), corrosion resistance and cytocompatibility are also essential features for high performance sustainable biosensor devices...

We demonstrate an electrochemical sensor for detection of unlabeled single-stranded DNA using peptide nucleic acid (PNA) probes coupled to the field-effect transistor (FET) gate. The label-free detection relies on the intrinsic charge of the DNA backbone. Similar detection schemes have mainly concentrated on sensitivity improvement with an emphasis on new sensor structures. Our approach focuses on using an extended-gate that separates the FET and the sensing electrode yielding a simple and mass fabricable device...

Most commercially available electrochemical enzyme sensor strips for the measurement of blood glucose use an artificial electron mediator to transfer electrons from the active side of the enzyme to the electrode. One mediator recently gaining attention for commercial sensor strips is hexaammineruthenium(III) chloride. In this study, we investigate and compare the preference of enzyme electrodes with two different FAD-dependent glucose dehydrogenases (FADGDHs) for the mediators hexaammineruthenium(III) chloride, potassium ferricyanide (the most common mediator in commercial sensor strips), and methoxy phenazine methosulfate (mPMS)...

Ionic liquids have been regarded as promising electrolytes as substitutes for volatile aqueous or organic solvents for electrochemical gas sensors. However ionic liquids are viscous and the slow diffusion of gas molecules leads to poor sensitivity and sluggish response times. Herein, we describe a strategy using an array of microstrips of ionic liquid containing magnetic nanoparticles as nano-stirrers for enhanced mass transport and gas sensing. Magnetic CoFe2O4 nanoparticles are synthesized and dispersed in a hydrophobic ionic liquid [BMP][Ntf2]...

We report for the first time the use of hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) as an electrocatalyst in electrochemical DNA sensing. For both stem-loop probe and linear probe electrochemical DNA sensors, the increase in probe rigidity upon target hybridization alters the accessibility of Cr(VI) to the methylene blue label on the surface-immobilized DNA probes. This change results in an enhancement in the electrocatalytic current when the sensors are interrogated using cyclic voltammetry at a slow scan rate. The incorporation of this electrocatalyst does not affect the normal "signal-off" sensing behavior observed in alternating current voltammetry; instead it enables simultaneous "signal-on" and "signal-off" detection of the target, while maintaining noted attributes of this class of folding- and dynamics-based sensors such as reusability and high selectivity...

Enzymes are macromolecular biological catalysts that accelerate chemical reactions. Enzyme labels are commonly used to obtain signal amplification in sensors and biosensors on the basis of reactions of some enzymes such as horseradish peroxidase (HRP). However, use of natural enzymes can encounter some challenges. Lately, nucleic acids that exhibit catalytic properties have attracted growing interest because they have certain advantages in comparison with traditional protein enzymes. DNAzymes are DNA-based catalysts, representing an important class of functional DNA, which have been widely used because of their excellent activity, programmability, signal amplification through catalytic turnover, high chemical stability, simple synthesis, and easy modification...

Sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆) gas-insulated electrical equipment is widely used in high-voltage (HV) and extra-high-voltage (EHV) power systems. Partial discharge (PD) and local heating can occur in the electrical equipment because of insulation faults, which results in SF₆ decomposition and ultimately generates several types of decomposition products. These SF₆ decomposition products can be qualitatively and quantitatively detected with relevant detection methods, and such detection contributes to diagnosing the internal faults and evaluating the security risks of the equipment...
