Data from Beijing Normal University Provide New Insights into Oligopeptides (Electrochemical Determination of Glutathione Using an Annealed Nickel Ion Implanted-Modified Electrode)
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A new study on Peptides is now available. According to news reporting out of Beijing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "In this paper, a novel nickel based indium tin oxide electrode was prepared by ion implantation first, and then annealed at 500 C for 2 hours. The characterizations of surface morphological, composition, and structure of the prepared electrodes were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Beijing Normal University, "Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and amperometry were employed for the study of the modified electrodes and their electrocatalytic activity toward glutathione. The results show that more nanoparticles appear on the electrode after annealing and the composition changes from zero valent metallic state (Ni-0) to compound (Ni(OH)(2)). The annealed nickel ion implanted-modified electrode (annealed-Ni/ITO) exhibits good electrocatalytic activity toward glutathione in acetate buffer solution. Amperometric response varies linearly with glutathione concentration ranging from 5 mu M to 840 mu M with a detection limit of 5 mu M. The presented sensor was also applied in the analysis of glutathione in the presence of uric acid and ascorbic acid."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In addition, the modified electrode exhibits acceptable reproducibility and long-term stability."
