Chitosan/silver nanocomposites for colorimetric detection of glucose molecules
This study was about the simple method for the rapid colorimetric and visual detection of glucose molecules in water medium. Silver nanoparticles were spread on the chitosan surface (CS/Ag NCs) and it was characterized by UV–visible spectroscopy, fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction spectroscopy (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). The CS/Ag NCs displayed a strong surface plasmon resonance band at 429 nm which disappears in the addition of accelerative concentrations of glucose molecules and it was attended by color alteration from yellow to colorless. The interaction of glucose molecules on the CS/Ag NCs was displayed through TEM technique. Glucose molecules was detected not only by naked eyes (from yellow to purple grey) but also by UV–vis spectrophotometer in the concentration range between 0 and 100 μM, with limit detection of 5 μM and a good linear relationship of R2 value = 0.99. The proposed paper was used for the application of the detection of glucose molecules in water sample with adequate outcome. This CS/Ag NCs was very simple and low cost system without using any other enzymatic catalyst and organic chromogenic agents for glucose molecules detection.
