  • Here, we report the fabrication of an enzyme-free glucose sensor benefiting from nickel-samarium nanoparticles-decorated MXene layered double hydroxide (MXene/Ni/Sm-LDH). The electrochemical response of the MXene/Ni/Sm-LDH to glucose was studied via cyclic voltammetry (CV). The fabricated electrode has high electrocatalytic activity for glucose oxidation. The voltametric response of the MXene/Ni/Sm-LDH electrode to glucose was investigated by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) that demonstrated an extended linear range of from 0.001 to 0.1 mM and 0.25-7.5 mM with a detection limit down to 0.24 μM (S/N = 3) and a sensitivity at 1673.54 μA mM-1 cm-2 1519.09 μA mM-1 cm-2 in concentrations of 0.01 mM and 1 mM respectively as well as good repeatability, high stability and applicability for the real sample analysis. Moreover, the as-fabricated sensor was applied to glucose detection in human sweat and showed promising results.
