Sensitive and selective detection of multiple metal ions using amino acids modified glassy carbon electrodes

Authors: Nisar A., Shah A., Zahid A., Iftikhar F.J., Hassan A., Shah A.H., She Z., Akhter M.S., Piro B., Kraatz H.-B.
We report for the first time the electrochemical detection of Zn2+, Cd2+, Cu2+ and Hg2+ at the surface of modified glassy carbon electrodes with different amino acids. The designed sensors showed superior heavy metal ion (HMs) detection limits, which are at lower levels than the thresholds suggested by the World [...]
