The synthesis of high-aspect-ratio Au microwires with a biomolecule for electrochemical sensing

Author affiliations

Abstract

Gold (Au) crystalline microwires with an unprecedented diameter of >500 nm and an aspect ratio >400 were synthesized using L-tyrosine as a reducing and capping agent. The Au microwires possessed high conductivity and electrocatalytic activities towards glucose and Hg(II). Their large diameters and aspect ratios also offered maneuverability, and it was easy to produce Au microelectrodes.
