Abstract

Screen‐printed electrodes are widely used in the construction of sensors. The use of graphite material is preferred due to its simple technological processing and low cost. Different graphite pastes are compared for hydrogen peroxide detection. The slope of the calibration curve, linearity and limit of detection have been compared for different pastes and technologies of graphite electrode preparation. The influence of the structure of the paste on response is discussed. Physical methods of sensitivity enhancement are proposed. All results are compared with platinum electrode as technological reference.
