Abstract

Owing to the broad application of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in various fields, the significance of selective and sensitive detection of H2O2 were adequately realized. Therefore, a lower cost, environmentally friendly, and high catalytic activity sensing platform towards H2O2 needs to be exploited and studied. In this work, carboxyl-functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes were clad in tin dioxide (with thickness of ∼10 nm) and decorated with palladium nanoparticles (∼20 nm) via a simple solvothermal method. A H2O2 sensor-based Pd–SnO2@MWCNTs nanocomposite was fabricated and exhibited a wide linear range of 0.01–50 mM with a low detection limit of 2.8 μM and high sensitivity of 46.1 μA mM−1 cm−2 (S/N = 3). The sensor also presented a high anti-interference, good stability, and good performance detecting H2O2 in disinfectant samples. Our synthesis strategy perhaps may provide a novel idea for fabricating other electrochemical sensors.
