Carbon Black Nanoparticles (CBNPs) onto Screen-Printed electrodes (SPE) are proposed as an electrode modifier for assisting electrodeposition of PB for non-enzymatic hydrogen peroxide electrochemical sensing. CBNPs allows an effective PB electrodeposition on SPE modified electrodes and enhance the electrochemical rate constant for the reduction of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) compared to bare SPE.
