Abstract: The MoOx/AuNPs composite film modified glassy carbon electrode was fabricated by electro-depositing simultaneously gold nanoparticles and molybdenum oxides using cyclic voltammetry. The morphology and topography of the MoOx/AuNPs composite were char-acterized by scan electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy respectively, and the electrocatalytic oxidation of glucose at the MoOx/AuNPs composite film was inves-tigated and analyzed in detail. It was shown that the MoOx/AuNPs composite was of strong electrocatalytic activity towards oxidation of glucose as well as other saccharides, so that an attempt was made for direct voltammetric determination of glucose. Then the positive scan polarization reverse catalytic voltammetry was proposed for the first time. Based on this method, the pure oxidation current was extracted by subtraction of the blank current in the reverse scan. The current sensitivity was enhanced tremendously and the signal to noise ra-tio was improved adequately. The electrocatalytic oxidation of glucose at the MoOx/AuNPs modified electrode was performed in alkaline medium, a wide linear range from 0.01 mmol/L to 4.0 mmol/L of glucose, a higher current sensitivity of 2.35 mA/(mmol/L·cm2), and a lower limit of detection of 9.01 μmol/L (at signal/noise=3) were achieved. In addition, the electrocatalytic oxidation of other saccharides such as lactose, fructose and sucrose was also evaluated.
