  • Abstract

    We have fabricated graphite, carbon nanotube (CNT) and conducting polymer (polyaniline) based electrochemical sensor for the detection of zinc metal as an environment pollutant. The electrochemical performance of amperometric sensor was tested by cyclic voltammetry, amperometry and linear sweep voltammetry experiments. The developed amperometric sensor displays good electrochemical activity towards the detection of zinc present in the environment. Storage and stability conditions were also tested. Fabricated non-enzymatic amperometric sensor was successfully used for the precise, sensitive and specific detection of zinc metal present as an environment pollutant.
