WP4. Biosensor Testing

D.4.1 First report on the feasibility study of biofunctionalising CMEs in Month 22

Pt and Au clusters deposited on electropolymerized polyaniline (PANI) and polypyrrole (PPy), respectively, have demonstrated remarkable electrochemical responses in comparison to the bare substrates (D4.1).

Preliminary cyclic-Voltammetry analysis conducted on a set of nanostructured ZnO nanorods modified with 2 and 4 monolayers (ML) of Au and Au50Pt50 clusters show very good response toward the detection of 4-aminophenol (D4.1).
