Abstract

A novel graphenated-polyaniline (GR-PANI) nanocomposite sensor was constructed and used for the determination of anthracene. The direct electro-oxidation behavior of anthracene on the GR-PANI modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was used as the sensing principle. The results indicate that the responseprofile of the oxidation of anthracene on GR-PANI-modified GCE provides for the construction of sensor systems based on amperometric and voltammetric signal transductions.
