3D Network and 2D Paper of Reduced Graphene Oxide/Cu2O Composite for Electrochemical Sensing of Hydrogen Peroxide
In this study, two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) freestanding reduced graphene oxide-supported Cu2O composites (Cu2O-rGO) were synthesized via simple and cost-efficient hydrothermal and filtration strategies. The structural characterizations clearly showed that highly porous 3D graphene aerogel-supported Cu2O microcrystals (3D Cu2O-GA) have been successfully synthesized, and the Cu2O microcrystals are uniformly assembled in the 3D GA. Meanwhile, paper-like 2D reduced graphene oxide-supported Cu2O nanocrystals (2D Cu2O-rGO-P) have also been prepared by a filtration process. It was found that the products prepared from different precursors and methods exhibited different sensing performances for H2O2 detection. The electrochemical measurements demonstrated that the 3D Cu2O-GA has high electrocatalytic activity for the H2O2 reduction and excellent sensing performance for the electrochemical detection of H2O2 with a detection limit of 0.37 μM and a linear detection range from 1.0 μM to 1.47 mM. ...
We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... mehr
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... mehr
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... mehr
