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.
