|Title:||Ultrasensitive Biosensor For Detection Of Organophosphorus Pesticides Based On A Macrocycle Complex/carbon Nanotubes Composite And 1-methyl-3-octylimidazolium Tetrafluoroborate As Binder Compound|
De Oliveira F.M.
|Abstract:||This work describes the highly sensitive detection of organophosphorus pesticides employing the cobalt(II) 4,4,4,4-tetrasulfo-phthalocyanine (CoTSPc) macrocycle complex, carbon nanotubes (CNT), and 1-methyl-3-octylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate (OMIM[BF4]). The technique is based on enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition. The composite was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, and amperometry. The AChE was immobilized on the composite electrode surface by cross-linking with glutaraldehyde and chitosan. The synergistic action of the CoTSPc/CNT/OMIM[BF4] composite showed excellent electrocatalytic activity, with a low applied potential for the amperometric detection of thiocholine (TCh) at 0.0 V vs. Ag/AgCl. The calculated catalytic rate constant, kcat, was 3.67 × 103 mol-1 L s-1. Under the optimum conditions, the inhibition rates of these pesticides were proportional to their concentrations in the ranges of 1.0 pmol L-1 to 1.0 nmol L-1 (fenitrothion), 2.0 pmol L-1 to 8.0 nmol L-1 (dichlorvos), and 16 pmol L-1 to 5.0 nmol L-1 (malathion). 2014.|
