Colorimetric Sensing of Clenbuterol using Gold Nanoparticles (GNPS)
Foodstuff superiority and safety are directly significant to people’s life and health. Incidents about unsafe food occur frequently. Clenbuterol (CB) incidents, related rapidly rising global cancer deaths and sportsperson performance showing lots of causality due to failures in detection. Clenbuterol is a β -adrenergic drug used for asthma treatment typically employed as a bronchial, particularly in the case of chronic illness. Colorimetric method is an economic and a highly sensitive method for the detection of outline for clenbuterol based on gold nanoparticles. The key point to the gold nanoparticles-based visual detection assay is to control dispersion and aggregation of colloidal nanoparticles by targets of interest, which usually relies on affinities between gold nanoparticles and targets by showing visual colour change. Thus the concentration of CB could be determined with the naked eye or a UV/Vis spectrometer.
