A novel non enzymatic glucose sensor was developed based on the renewable Ni nanoparticle-loaded carbon nanofiber paste (NiCFP) electrode. The NiCF nano composite was prepared by combination of electro spinning technique with thermal treatment method. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images showed that large amounts of spherical nanoparticles were well dispersed on the surface or embedded in the carbon nanofibers. And the nanoparticles were composed of Ni and NiO, as revealed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and X-ray powder diffraction (XRD). In application to nonenzymatic glucose determination, the renewable NiCFP electrodes, which were constructed by simply mixing the electrospun nano composite with mineral oil, exhibited strong and fast amperometric response without being poisoned by chloride ions. Low detection limit of 1M with wide linear range from 2M to 2.5mM (R = 0.9997) could be obtained. The current response of the proposed glucose sensor was highly sensitive and stable, attributing to the electro catalytic performance of the firmly embedded Ni nanoparticles as well as the chemical inertness of the carbon-based electrode. The good analytical performance, low cost and straightforward preparation method made this novel electrode material promising for the development of effective glucose sensor.
