Thesis abstract:

Among various nanomaterials, graphene has emerged as most promising material for electrochemical sensors due to its extraordinary properties such as very high surface area (~2600m2/g twice of carbon nanotubes), ultrahigh electrical conductivity and excellent mechanical stability. Detection of trace amount of analytes such as biomolecules, food contaminants and heavy metal ions is of great significance hence in this project, novel graphene based nanomaterials will be developed for electrochemical sensing for various analytes with the goal to achieve higher sensitivity, wide detection range and lower detection limit than existing carbon based nanomaterials.
