Most of the common redox mediators such as organic dyes and cyanide ligand-associated metal complex systems that have been used for various electrochemical applications are hazardous nature. Sesamol, a vital nutrient that exists in natural products like sesame seeds and oil, shows several therapeutic benefits including anticancer, antidiabetic, cardiovascular protective properties, etc. Herein, we introduce a new electrochemical redox platform based on a sesamol derivative, sesamol-quinone (Ses-Qn; oxidized sesamol), prepared by the in situ electrochemical oxidation method on a carbon nanoblack chemically modified glassy carbon electrode surface (GCE/CB@Ses-Qn) in pH 7 phosphate buffer solution, for nontoxic and sustainable electrochemical, electroanalytical, and bioelectroanalytical applications. The new Ses-Qn-modified electrode showed a well-defined redox peak at Eo = 0.1 V vs Ag/AgCl without any surface-fouling behavior. Following three representative applications were demonstrated with this new redox system: (i) simple and quick estimation of sesamol content in the natural herbal products by electrochemical oxidation on GCE/CB followed by analyzing the oxidation current signal. (ii) Utilization of the GCE/CB@Ses-Qn as a transducer, bioelectrocatalytic reduction, and sensing of H2O2 after absorbing the horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-based enzymatic system on the underlying surface. The biosensor showed a highly selective H2O2 signal with current sensitivity and detection limit values 0.1303 μA μM-1 and 990 nM, respectively, with tolerable interference from the common biochemicals like dissolved oxygen, cysteine, ascorbic acid, glucose, xanthine, hypoxanthine, uric acid, and hydrazine. (iii) Electrochemical immunosensing of white spot syndrome virus by sequentially modifying primary antibody, antigen, secondary antibody (HRP-linked), and bovine serum albumin on the redox electrode, followed by selective bioelectrochemical detection of H2O2. © 2018 American Chemical Society.
