A mixed metal oxide modified electrode has been employed for the voltammetric determination of neurotransmitter serotonin in the presence of dopamine. The electrode was morphologically and electrochemically characterized using scanning electron microscope and cyclic voltammetry respectively. Differential pulse voltammetry were performed to measure the serotonin concentration at the electrode surface. A dynamic linear range of 0.2-52 μm was obtained. Viability of the sensor was tested in blood sample.

Computational studies were carried out on Pyranone Benzene clusters at different charged states using density functional theory. The relative orientation of the two molecules depends on the charged state of the complex and this property can be utilized in designing nano-mechanical devices such as flippers or switches. © 2015 IEEE.
