A simple approach is followed for the fabrication of disposable nonenzymatic hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) sensor using gold nanoparticles decorated reduced graphene oxide (Au/rGO) nanocomposite. Au/rGO nanocomposite was prepared by one pot reduction of graphene oxide and Au(III) ions. The composite was characterized using various spectroscopic and microscopic techniques. The Au/rGO nanocomposite suspension was cast on the indigenously fabricated screen printed electrode (SPE). Voltammetric studies on the modified electrode showed that the Au/rGO nanocomposite modified SPE have enhanced catalytic activity towards H2O2. The sensor exhibited linear relationship in the range from 20 μM to 10 mM with a sensitivity of 1238 μA mM- 1 cm- 2 and a limit of detection 0.1 μM. The sensor also showed excellent selectivity in presence of other electroactive species such as ascorbic acid, dopamine, glucose and uric acid. © 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
