An electrochemical biosensor based on manganese oxide (Mn3O4) and chitosan (Cn) nanocomposite has been fabricated for fish freshness detection. The electrophoretic deposition of Mn3O4 nanoparticles (15-20 nm) with Cn has changed their morphological arrangement leading to pearl shaped of Mn3O4-Cn nanocomposite on indium tin oxide substrate. Size and morphology of nanocomposite have been confirmed by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results of electrochemical response reveal that this improved sensor has widest detection range of xanthine concentration from 1 to 500 mu M and excellent sensitivity of 1.46 mu A mu M-1 cm(-2). The fabricated XOx/Mn3O4-Cn/ITO biosensor can detect as low as 1.31 mu M of xanthine and lower K-m value of 0.018 mu M confirming its superior affinity towards the nanocomposite film.
