Superparamagnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles-carbon nitride nanotube hybrids for highly efficient peroxidase mimetic catalysts.


PMID 22075534

Abstract

We report a facile route to synthesize size tunable Fe(3)O(4) nanoparticles (NPs)-carbon nitride nanotube (CNNT) hybrids. These hybrids showing the water-soluble property are proven to exhibit ultra high peroxidase mimetic activity compared to those of pure NPs, where a colorless peroxidase substrate 3,3,5,5-tetramethylbenzidine changes by H(2)O(2) to its blue colored oxidized state.
