Abstract

Nitrogen-doped carbon nanofibers (NCNFs) was synthesized by simple electrospinning, followed by the thermal treatment using urea as nitrogen source. The morphology and microstructure of CNFs were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results indicate that the prepared NCNFs exhibited small diameter and rough surface. The NCNFs film could be directly used for the electrode modification and showed good catalytic activity toward the oxidation of dopamine (DA) and could be used for the determination of DA by cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse voltammetry with a wide linear range and low detection limit. The proposed method was successfully applied to the analysis of real sample.
