Preparation and Characterization of Electrochemical Glucose Sensor Based on Nickel Electrodes Supported by Silicon Microchannel Plates
A novel nickel nanocomposite electrode supported by 3D ordered silicon microchannel plates (MCP) had been reported and its electrocatalytic toward the oxidation of glucose for sensor had been studied. The 3D ordered Si MCP electrodes were first fabricated by electrochemical etching and then Nickel nanoparticles were deposited onto the sidewall of the MCP via electroless deposition followed by annealing at 300°C for 300 s under argon to stabilize the structure. The morphology of the Ni/Si-MCP electrode was characterized by Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The electrochemical methods were employed to investigate the Ni/Si-MCP materials. The Ni/Si-MCP nanocomposites exhibit superior electrocatalytic properties towards glucose electro-oxidation in alkaline solutions, in addition to showing excellent long-term stability and good reproducibility.
