Vanadium pentoxide nanorods (V2O5-nanorods) and poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) were assembled onto gold-coated substrates via spin-assisted assembly technique and used as a chemically sensitive electrodes. PAH/V2O5-nanorods detected H+ ions (pH) with sensitivity between 52-61 mV/pH (close to Nernstian theoretical value). As a proof-of-concept, a urea biosensor has been developed, upon immobilization of urease enzyme on PAH/V2O5-nanorods electrodes. The biosensor could detect urea in a 0.05-5 mM dynamic range. The spin-assisted assembly technique enables the combination of different materials in a simple way and offers advantages for the construction of functional electrodes. (c) 2016 Elsevier B.V.
