Abstract

A simple and highly sensitive method for the determination of hydrogen peroxide was developed by electrodepositing Cu and MnO2 onto a g-C3N4 coated glassy carbon electrode in a one-step procedure. The morphology of the fabricated electrode material was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). The electrochemical properties were measured using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and chronoamperometry. The modified sensor exhibits high catalytic activity towards electrochemical oxidation of hydrogen peroxide in a neutral phosphate buffer solution. Within the concentration ranges of 0.01–20 mM and 20–400 mM, the fabricated sensor shows a good linear relationship with the oxidation peak current, the detection limit is 0.85 × 10−6 M. Furthermore, the sensor exhibits high selectivity, good stability, and reproducibility. We successfully applied the sensor to detect hydrogen peroxide residues in food samples with satisfactory results, providing a new approach for food security evaluation.
