King Abdulaziz University was founded in 1967 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Designed by English architect John Elliott, it had 2,000 faculty and more than 37,000 students in 2000/2001. Established initially as a private university by a group of businessmen led by Sheikh Muhammad Abu Bakr Bakhashab Pasha and including the writer Hamza Bogary. in 1974 King Abdulaziz University was converted to a public university by a resolution of the Council Ministers of Saudi Arabia . Due to the adoption of the government, the university changed to a large university. According to the latest statistics conducted in 2012 from the Ministry of Higher Education in Saudi Arabia, King Abdulaziz University had 6,148 faculty and total of 132,094 students.The university has number of scientific and theatrical fields of study and the exclusiveness of certain specializations such as Seas science, Nuclear Engineering, and Medical Engineering. Due to Islamic regulations, King Abdulaziz University has separate campuses for male and female students. The university offers an external program and online programs to help students who can not attend classes and to cope with the development in learning by using the technology. Wikipedia.

It is highly attractive to construct a natural enzyme-free electrode for sensitive and selective detection of glucose. In this Letter, we report that a Ni2P nanoarray on conductive carbon cloth (Ni2P NA/CC) behaves as an efficient three-dimensional catalyst electrode for glucose electrooxidation under alkaline conditions. Electrochemical measurements demonstrate that the Ni2P NA/CC, when used as a nonenzymatic glucose sensor, offers superior analytical performances with a short response time of 5 s, a wide detection range of 1 M to 3 mM, a low detection limit of 0.18 M (S/N = 3), a response sensitivity of 7792 A mM(-1) cm(-2), and satisfactory selectivity, specificity, and reproducibility. Moreover, it can also be used for glucose detection in human blood serum, promising its application toward determination of glucose in real samples.
