In this paper, the determination of Thiram fungicide by a novel modified screen-printed carbon electrode (SPCE) fabricated modifying the working electrode (WE) with 2D-GO/WS2 nanohybrid composites, is reported. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Raman spectroscopy, and fluorescence analysis (PL) were used to reveal the morphological and microstructural characteristics of the 2D-GO/WS2 nanohybrids with different graphene oxide:tungsten disulphide (GO:WS2) ratio. Electrochemical characterization demonstrated that the 2D-WS2/GO nanohybrids having a GO:WS2 ratio = 2:1 shows the highest electrocatalytic activity towards oxidation of Thiram. The developed sensor permits the quantification of Thiram in the linear range 0.083-0.33 µM with a limit of detection (LOD) of 0.02 µM, which is below the legal limits for this fungicide in drinking water or foods.

Abstract

In this paper, the determination of Thiram fungicide by a novel modified screen-printed carbon electrode (SPCE) fabricated modifying the working electrode (WE) with 2D-GO/WS2 nanohybrid composites, is reported. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Raman spectroscopy, and fluorescence analysis (PL) were used to reveal the morphological and microstructural characteristics of the 2D-GO/WS2 nanohybrids with different graphene oxide:tungsten disulphide (GO:WS2) ratio. Electrochemical characterization demonstrated that the 2D-WS2/GO nanohybrids having a GO:WS2 ratio = 2:1 shows the highest electrocatalytic activity towards oxidation of Thiram. The developed sensor permits the quantification of Thiram in the linear range 0.083-0.33 µM with a limit of detection (LOD) of 0.02 µM, which is below the legal limits for this fungicide in drinking water or foods.
