Abstract

It is of great importance to determine the superoxide anion (O2˙), a kind of active free radical that plays important roles in catalytic and biological processes. We present here a high-energy-state biomimetic enzyme with extraordinary activity for O2˙ by inducing surface oxygen defects in MnTiO3 nanodiscs. Oxygen defects enable surface rich active Mn sites with high oxidation ability, which significantly promote the adsorption and electro-oxidation of O2˙. The oxygen deficient MnTiO3 towards O2˙ exhibits a sensitivity of 126.48 μA μM−1 cm−2 and a detection limit of 1.54 nM, among the best performance of O2˙ sensing platforms.
