Abstract

Due to the warm and favourably humid climate of Southern Hungary, the maize is one of the most important crops. The protection against crop damage caused by fusarium and Aspergillus species is essential. Detection of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) molecules in cereal crops by selective sensors is important, while they can cause serious diseases in humans and animals if they enter the food chain. Our main objective was to develop selective AFB1 sensor with increased sensitivity applying βCD-functionalized gold nanoparticles (AuβCD NPs) in surface plasmon resonance (SPR) measuring apparatus. The nanoparticles ca. 10 nm in diameter were prepared in the presence of thiol-modified cyclodextrin. The adsorption isotherms of AFB1 on bare, thiol-modified cyclodextrin and AuβCD NPs covered Au film surface were calculated using SPR platform. The AFB1 concentration can be quantitatively determined in the 0.001-23.68 ng/mL range. The AuβCD NPs were found to be highly sensitive and exhibited a remarkably low limit of detection (LOD; 1 pg/mL) without using other analytical reagents.
