Abdullah, Jaafar and Yap, Wing Fen and Yusof, Nor Azah and Mastar, Amiruddin Ashil (2019) An optical based on graphene quantum dots for hydrogen peroxide detection. Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences, 23 (4). pp. 572-579. ISSN 1394-2506


Graphene quantum dots (GQDs) is a zero-dimensional material of the carbon family and considered as a small cutting fragment from graphene sheet. It has unique electronic and optical properties due to electron confinement in the finite size of graphene cluster that leads to the opening of energy gap and quantization of electronic energy. In this study, biosensing based on GQDs in combination with enzyme (horseradish peroxidase, HRP) for the determination of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been presented. The GQDs was used as an indicator reveals the fluorescence property of the system based on fluorescence quenching of GQDs which is induced from the enzymatic reaction. The presence of H2O2 quenches the fluorescence intensity of GQDs system which is proportional to the concentration of H2O2. Parameters optimization such as response time, enzyme concentrations, pH of buffer have been investigated. For linear calibration graph, it showed a linear dependence on the H2O2 concentration ranging from 1.0 to 100.0 μM with the detection limit of 1.0 μM.
