Ruthenium Purple (RP), an analogue of Prussian Blue, has potentially advantageous electrochemical characteristics. We now demonstrate its use in microelectrode biosensors for the first time. An RP layer was grown on, and remained stably anchored to, the surface of gold microelectrodes at physiological pH ranges. Crucially, it retained its electrochemical activity in sodium-based phosphate buffers. The RP microelectrodes displayed electrocatalytic reduction of hydrogen peroxide at 0 to -50 mV (vs Ag/AgCl). To fabricate biosensors on the RP microelectrodes, we used a sol-gel film electrodeposition technique to create ATP and hypoxanthine biosensors as examples of the methodology. These RP-mediated biosensors displayed excellent performance including the following: high selectivity against interferences such as 5HT, ascorbic acid, urate, and acetaminophen; high sensitivity with wide linear calibration range; and good stability. These attractive characteristics demonstrate that RP can be universally employed as an electron mediator in fabrication of highly selective oxidase-based microelectrode biosensors. Furthermore, given their ability to operate in the presence of physiological levels of Na+, the RP-mediated biosensors can be potentially applied to the in vitro and in vivo measurement of physiological signaling substances.
