Carbon nanodots as peroxidase mimetics and their applications to glucose detection

Author affiliations

Abstract

Carbon nanodots (C-Dots) were found to possess intrinsic peroxidase-like activity, and could catalytically oxidize 3,3′,5,5′-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) by H2O2 to produce a colour reaction. This offers a simple, sensitive and selective colorimetric method for glucose determination in serum.
