    Elsevier B.V  2020
    To improve the biocompatibility and corrosion resistance of 316L SS (Stainless Steel) metal implants, HAp(hydroxyapatite)/TiO2/Al2O3 nanocomposite coating was created using dip sol-gel method sintered at 550 °C. The weight percentage of TiO2+ Al2O3 in these coatings was 20, 30, and 40% wt. In this study, characterization was performed using FTIR (Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy), XRD, FE-SEM (Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope), EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy), DLS (Dynamic Light Scattering), Pull-off, and AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy) analysis. The potentiodynamic polarization and EIS (Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy) were performed in the simulated body fluid... 

    Adsorption of eco-friendly carthamus tinctorius on steel surface in saline solution: a combination of electrochemical and theoretical studies

    In this study, the different parts of carthamus tinctorius plant, including petal (SPE), leaf (SLE), and shoot (SSE), have been extracted. Adsorption of the extracts on mild steel in 3.5 wt. % NaCl solution was evaluated employing electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), potentiodynamic polarization, and electrochemical noise measurements (EN). The field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) were employed to appraise the morphology of the samples surface subjected to the test solutions. According to the EIS results, the maximum adsorption efficiency belonged to the solution containing 1 g L−1 of... 

    ZnO nanoparticle/nanorod-based label-free electrochemical immunoassay for rapid detection of MMP-9 biomarker

    , Article Biochemical Engineering Journal ; Volume 164 , 2020 Shabani, E ; Abdekhodaie, M. J ; Mousavi, S. A ; Taghipour, F ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier B.V  2020
    A label-free electrochemical biosensor was developed for the rapid detection of the matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9) biomarker on the basis of antibody immobilizing on the zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticle and ZnO nanorod electrodes. The charge transfer resistance (Rct) of the electrodes was used as the indicator for MMP-9 concentration, which was obtained through cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The ZnO nanorod-based biosensor exhibited linear behavior in the MMP-9 concentration range of 1–1000 ng/ml, which is a wider range than the available concentration ranges for most of the conventional methods. The biosensor sensitivity was 32.5 μA/(decade × cm2)... 

    Mediator-less highly sensitive voltammetric detection of glutamate using glutamate dehydrogenase/vertically aligned CNTs grown on silicon substrate

    , Article Biosensors and Bioelectronics ; Volume 31, Issue 1 , 2012 , Pages 110-115 ; 09565663 (ISSN) Gholizadeh, A ; Shahrokhian, S ; Iraji zad, A ; Mohajerzadeh, S ; Vosoughi, M ; Darbari, S ; Sanaee, Z ; Sharif University of Technology
    A sensitive glutamate biosensor is prepared based on glutamate dehydrogenase/vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (GLDH, VACNTs). Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes were grown on a silicon substrate by direct current plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (DC-PECVD) method. The electrochemical behavior of the synthesized VACNTs was investigated by cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopic methods. Glutamate dehydrogenase covalently attached on tip of VACNTs. The electrochemical performance of the electrode for detection of glutamate was investigated by cyclic and differential pulse voltammetry. Differential pulse voltammetric determinations of glutamate are performed... 

    Design and fabrication of an electrochemical aptasensor using Au nanoparticles/carbon nanoparticles/cellulose nanofibers nanocomposite for rapid and sensitive detection of Staphylococcus aureus

    Since that pathogenic bacteria are major threats to human health, this paper describes the fabrication of an effective and durable sensing platform based on gold nanoparticles/carbon nanoparticles/cellulose nanofibers nanocomposite (AuNPs/CNPs/CNFs) at the surface of glassy carbon electrode for sensitive and selective detection of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus). The AuNPs/CNPs/CNFs nanocomposite with the high surface area, excellent conductivity, and good biocompatibility was used for self-assembled of the thiolated specific S. aureus aptamer as a sensing element. The surface morphology of AuNPs/CNPs/CNFs nanocomposite was characterized with field emission scanning electron microscopy...
