A novel electrochemical biosensor for sensitive and selective detection of mercury (II) ions (Hg2+) based on a DNA grafted graphene is proposed. Graphene oxide (GO) was reduced by dopamine, and then the single-strand probe DNA modified at the 5'-end with an alkylamino modifier (NH2-ssDNA) was grafted on the reduced graphene oxide (RGO) surface via Michael addition reaction. In the presence of Hg2+, the target DNA with four thymine-thymine (T-T) mismatches would hybridize with the probe DNA on the glassy carbon electrode (GCE) through T-Hg2+-T coordination chemistry. The hybridization of the two oligonucleotides leads to the increase in the peak currents of [Ru(NH3)6]3+, which could be used for electrochemical sensing of Hg2+. The difference in the value of the peak currents of [Ru(NH3)6]3+ before and after DNA hybridization was linear with the concentration of Hg2+ in the range from 8.0×10?9 to 1.0×10?7M with a linear coefficiency of 0.996. The detection limit was 5.0×10?9 M (S/N=3). Particularly, the proposed method was applied successfully to the determination of Hg2+ detection in real environmental samples.
