Abstract

The prevalent use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in commercial goods has brought forth an urgent need for environmental salvation. With the global river systems being contaminated by AgNPs, fast and efficient detection systems are needed to trace the presence of AgNPs in common water to prevent detrimental effects to the public health. In this work, the detection of AgNPs via electrochemical oxidation has been achieved on a "Lab-on-chip" platform. This platform provides a fast, convenient, and portable detection system for the detection of AgNPs in common water.
