Abstract: Electrochemical detection of glucose using simple polymeric electrodes without the assistance of enzymatic or inorganic catalysts (i.e. metals or metal oxides) has been issued a challenge to the scientific community. In this work we present the development of a potentiometric glucose sensor based on nanometric films of a very electroactive polythiophene derivative bearing a hydroxyl substituent per repeat unit. The sensor, which is enzyme free and does not require from additional catalytic nanoparticles, exhib…
