The viability of using a pad printing technique for the prodn. of disposable electrode systems was assessed. The morphol. and structural characteristics of the C ink layers was characterized and the electrochem. behavior of the resulting layers studied using a no. of model systems. Voltammetric and potentiometric methodologies (in aq. buffer and MeCN) were conducted using ferrocence carboxylic acid and naphthoquinone-thiol systems. The ability to create modified electrode assemblies through the incorporation of indicators directly within the ink prior to printing provides a facile means through which the selectivity of the electrodes can be enhanced and provides a quick means of prototyping reagentless sensors.
