Application of Carbon Nanobeads Prepared from Castor Seeds as a Sensor for the Detection of Estradiol

Authors(3) :-Swapna Gijare, Suma Jebin, Umesh Mhapankar

This paper presents the application of Carbon Nano beads (CNBs) prepared from castor seeds as a precursor by CVD method as a sensor to determine the concentration of estradiol in the urine sample. Semiconductors are the key for fabricating sensors. The semiconducting nature of prepared CNBs has been confirmed by photoluminescence (PL) technique. The required study for determining the hormone content of the urine sample in the presence of CNBs as a sensing material has been carried out using a CNB jig. The output voltage of the jig for the samples as well as standard solution of estradiol has been measured and calibrated into the concentration of estradiol in ?g/ml. This sensor is a non-invasive, cheap, faster, simple to fabricate as compared to conventional diagnostic methods available.
