Thesis abstract:

Among various nanomaterials, nanocarbons has emerged as most promising material for electrochemical sensors due to extraordinary properties such as very high surface area (~2600m2/g for graphene), 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 in various applications. Therefore, in this project, novel carbon based nanomaterials will be developed for electrochemical sensing for various analytes such as H2O2 with the goal to achieve higher sensitivity, wide detection range and lower detection limit than existing carbon based nanomaterials.
