Progress on the influence of non-enzymatic electrodes characteristics on the response to glucose detection: a review (2016-2022)

Abstract: Glucose sensing devices have experienced significant progress in the last years in response to the demand for cost-effective monitoring. Thus, research efforts have been focused on achieving reliable, selective, and sensitive sensors able to monitor the glucose level in different biofluids. The development of enzyme-based devices is challenged by poor stability, time-consuming, and complex purification procedures, facts that have given rise to the synthesis of enzyme-free sensors. Recent advances focus on the use of different components: metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), carbon nanomaterials, or metal oxides. Motivated by this topic, several reviews have been published addressing the sensor materials and synthesis methods, gathering relevant information for the development of new nanostructures. However, the abundant information has not concluded yet in commercial devices and is not useful from an engineering point of view. The dependence of the electrode response on its physico-chemical nature, which would determine the selection and optimization of the materials and synthesis method, remains an open question. Thus, this review aims to critically analyze from an engineering vision the existing information on non-enzymatic glucose electrodes; the analysis is performed linking the response in terms of sensitivity when interferences are present, stability, and response under physiological conditions to the electrode characteristics.
