Antioxidant redox sensors based on DNA modified carbon screen-printed electrodes were developed. The carbon ink was doped with TiO2 nanoparticles, onto which double- strand DNA was adsorbed. A redox mediator, namely, tris- 2,2′-bipyridine ruthenium(II) [Ru(bpy)32+] was electro- oxidized on the electrode surface to subsequently oxidize both the adsorbed ds-DNA and the antioxidants in solu- tion. The resulting oxidation damage of the adsorbed ds- DNA was then detected by square wave voltammetry in a second solution containing only Ru(bpy)3Cl2 at a low con- centration (μM). A kinetic model was developed to study the protecting role of antioxidants in aqueous solutions. The electrochemical sensor has been applied to evaluate the redox antioxidant capacity of different molecules.
