Abstract

Iron tetranitro-phthalocyanine was synthesized by the reaction of 4-nitrophthalimide with FeCl₃, and was then modified by -(trimethoxysilyl)propane-1-thiol to prepare functionalized iron phthalocyanine. A graphene oxide/iron phthalocyanine composite was then prepared, comprising functionalized iron phthalocyanine supported on the surface of graphene oxide via covalent bonds. All these complexes were characterized by infrared spectra (IR), X-ray diffraction, ultraviolet/visible (UV/vis) and Raman spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. The catalytic properties of the graphene oxide/iron phthalocyanine composite for catalyzing adrenaline oxidation were evaluated by measuring the absorbance intensity at the characteristic peak of the oxidation product. A fiberoptic adrenaline sensor based on a graphene oxide/iron phthalocyanine composite catalyst and fluorescence quenching was fabricated and studied. The relationship between the concentrations of dissolved oxygen and adrenaline was investigated by measuring the phase delay . The results showed that the graphene oxide/iron phthalocyanine composite can effectively catalyze adrenaline oxidization, and the optimal conditions are pH = 8.0, = 30 °C, and = 4.0 mg/mL; moreover, concentrations of adrenaline can be detected in the range from 1.8×10 to 9.2×10 mol/L with a sensor response time of 4 min.
