Abstract [en]

This paper presents a new approach to detect dopamine in nanomolar range using an electrochemical sensor utilizing a composite made of chitosan-stabilized silver nanoparticles and p-toluene sulfonic acid-doped ultrathin polypyrrole film. Studies included cyclic voltammogram, amperometry, differential pulse voltammetry and also investigation by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. A detection limit of 0.58 nM was achieved in the linear range 1 x 10(-9) M to 1.2 x 10(-7) M. High sensitivity towards DA, good reproducibility and long-term stability have been demonstrated without interference from ascorbic acid, uric acid, epinephrine, l-dopa, glucose. The sensing system was successfully applied for quantitative determination of dopamine in commercially available human blood serum.
