The development of efficient and cost effective nonenzymatic biosensors with remarkable sensitivity, selectivity and stability for the detection of biomolecules, especially glucose is one of the major challenges in materials- and electrochemistry. Herein, we report the design and preparation of nonenzymatic biosensor based on an ionic liquid tagged cobalt-salophen metal complex (Co-salophen-IL) immobilized on electrochemically reduced graphene oxide (ERGO) for the detection of glucose via an electrochemical oxidation. The bioinspired Cosalophen-IL complex has been synthesized and immobilized on ERGO, which was previously deposited on a screen printed carbon electrode (SPE) to form the Co-salophen-IL/ERGO/SPE nonenzymatic biosensor. The electrochemical behaviour of this modified electrode was studied using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Notably, the Co-salophen-IL/ERGO/SPE biosensor exhibited excellent electrocatalytic activity towards glucose oxidation in 0.1 M NaOH, based on which an amperometric sensor has been developed. The modified electrode has shown prominent performance towards glucose detection over a wide linear range from 0.2 mu M to 1.8 mM with a detection limit and sensitivity of 0.79 mu M and 62 mu A mM(-1) respectively. The detection was carried out at 0.40 V and such a less working potential excludes the interference from the coexisting oxidizable analytes. The role of Co-salophen, IL and ERGO in the electrocatalytic activity has been systematically investigated. Furthermore, the biosensor demonstrated high stability with good reproducibility.
