Summary of "Stimuli-enabled switch-like paracetamol electrochemical sensor based on thermosensitive polymer and MWCNTs-GQDs composite nanomaterial."

A temperature-controlled switchable electrochemical sensor was constructed based on a composite film consisting of thermosensitive block polymer poly(styrene-b-(N-isopropylacrylamide)-b-styrene) (PS-PNIPAm-PS), carboxylated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs-COOH) and amino-functionalized graphene quantum dots (N-GQDs). The prepared sensor showed good temperature sensitivity and reversibility in sensing paracetamol. In the low temperature environment, the polymer stretched to bury the electroactive sites of the carbon nanocomposite, and the paracetamol could not pass through the polymer to achieve electronic exchange, representing the "closed" state. Conversely, in the high temperature environment, the polymer shrank to expose the electroactive sites and enlarge background currents, the paracetamol was able to undergo the redox reaction normally and generate the response current, representing the "on" state. In addition, the sensor had a wide detection range (0.1 to 7.0 μM and 7.0 to 103.0 μM) and a low LOD of 66 nM for paracetamol. This switch-like sensor provided a novel idea for the application of thermosensitive polymers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Genes that cause the epigenotype (i.e., the interrelated developmental pathways through which the adult organism is realized) to switch to an alternate cell lineage-related pathway. Switch complexes control the expression of normal functional development as well as oncogenic transformation.

A scanning probe microscopy technique that uses an ultramicroelectrode as the scanning probe that simultaneously records changes in electrochemical potential as it scans thereby creating topographical images with localized electrochemical information.

An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.

A site located in the INTRONS at the 5' end of each constant region segment of a immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene where recombination (or rearrangement) occur during IMMUNOGLOBULIN CLASS SWITCHING. Ig switch regions are found on genes encoding all five classes (IMMUNOGLOBULIN ISOTYPES) of IMMUNOGLOBULIN HEAVY CHAINS.

Membrane transporters that co-transport two or more dissimilar molecules in the opposite direction across a membrane. Usually the transport of one ion or molecule is against its electrochemical gradient and is "powered" by the movement of another ion or molecule with its electrochemical gradient.
