In this project, we proposed to develop Layer by Layer films to detect pesticide. For this purpose, LbL films of different architectures composed of reduced graphene oxide functionalized with poly (diallyl dimethyl ammonium chloride) (PDDA), forming the reduced graphene and oxide functionalized with poly (4-styrene sulfonic acid) (PSS), forming the GPSS, and gold nanoparticle (AuNP) will be deposited onto glass substrate containing ITO layer to form the sensory unit. The best manufacturing conditions of nanostructured films (architecture, number of bilayers, analyte concentration, temperature) will be investigated in order to obtain the best sensor. Firstly, the characterization of synthesized nanomaterials and nanostructured films will be carried out by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) spectroscopic techniques. Then, the performance of the sensors formed by different films will be evaluated in the detection of Methyl Parathion in terms of limit of detection, sensitivity and interferences through the electrochemical techniques of cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse. The best sensor will be applied for the detection of methyl parathion in environmental samples. (AU)
