Abstract

We have successfully studied the charge transfer kinetics between carbon paste electrodes and dopamine using green synthesized rectangular monoclinic CuO nanoparticles (NPs) prepared by Alchemilla vulgaris leaves with the one-pot green synthesis method. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results confirmed the monoclinic structure with a particle size of around 85 nm. The investigation of thermal properties was carried out by thermogravimetric (TG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). We also studied the electrochemical response of green synthesized CuO nanoparticles to detect Dopamine (DA) using cyclic voltammetry, which was proven to be an excellent electrocatalyst for the electro-oxidation of DA. The fabricated CuO nanoparticle modified carbon paste electrode (CMCPE) depicts fantastic selectivity, robustness, and sensitivity in analyzing DA in clinical and pharmaceutical preparations. The highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) orbitals of the DA were studied using positive and negative charges at the CuO modified carbon paste electrode interface. Frontier molecular orbitals of DA are plotted to understand electron transfer reactivity at the electrode interface.
