In recent years, there have been many studies on metal/carbon hybrid materials for electrochemical applications. However, reducing the metal content in catalysts is still a challenge. Here, a facile synthesis of palladium (Pd) nanoparticle-embedded N-doped carbon fibers (Pd/N-C) through electropolymerization and reduction methods is demonstrated. The as-prepared Pd/N-C contains only 1.5 wt % Pd. Under optimal conditions, bisphenol A is detected by using amperometry in two dynamic ranges from 0.1 to 10 μm and from 10 to 200 μm, and the obtained correlation coefficients are close to 0.9836 and 0.9987, respectively. The detection limit (DL) for bisphenol A is determined to be 29.44 (±0.77) nm.
