In the present work, a highly sensitive and selective biosensor for directly electrochemical detection of bisphenol A was
developed based on aptamer-functionalized nanoporous gold. Nanoporous gold was prepared by dealloying Ag from Au/Ag
alloy leaves in concentrated nitric acid. Nanoporous gold was attached onto glassy carbon electrode and then functionalized
with bisphenol A-specific aptamer via the formation of Au-S bond. The morphology of fabricated sensor was studied by
SEM and the immobilization of aptamer was demonstrated by XPS. Nanoporous gold exhibited excellent catalytic activity
toward the redox reaction of BPA captured by aptamer, which led to ultrasensitivity. Moreover, the aptamer immobilized
on nanoporous gold improved the selectivity of the developed biosensor. The experimental parameters in terms of aptamer
concentration, reaction time, pH, and temperature were optimized. The calibration curve was constructed and the detection
limit was determined to be at subfemtomole. The developed biosensor showed promising potential in real sample analysis.
