|Title:||Non-enzymatic glucose sensing properties of MoO3 nanorods: Experimental and density functional theory investigations|
density functional theory
|Abstract:||We report the growth of monoclinic MoO3 nanorods by a simple and highly reproducible hydrothermal method. Structural and morphological studies provide significant insights about the phase and crystalline structure of the synthesized samples. Further, the non-enzymatic glucose sensing properties were investigated and the MoO3 nanorods exhibited a sensitivity of 15.4 A M-1 cm-2 in the 5-175 M linear range. Also, a quick response time of 8 s towards glucose molecules was observed, exhibiting an excellent electrochemical activity. We have also performed density functional theory (DFT) simulations to qualitatively support our experimental observations by investigating the interactions and charge-transfer mechanism of glucose on MoO3. There is a strong interaction between glucose and the MoO3 surface due to charge transfer from a bonded O atom of glucose to a Mo atom of MoO3 resulting in a strong hybridization between the p orbital of O and d orbital of Mo. Thus, the MoO3 nanorod-based electrodes are found to be good glucose sensing materials for practical industrial applications. � 2017 IOP Publishing Ltd.|
