A gold nanoparticle/reduced graphene oxide composite electrode (AuNP/rGO) was fabricated for the determination of the main bioamines and their precursor amino acids in beer based on a miniaturized capillary electrophoresis with amperometric detection system (mini-CE-AD). The surface morphology and structure of the synthetic AuNP/rGO material were observed by scanning electron microscope, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscope, X-ray diffraction, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The analytical performance of the composite electrode was verified by cyclic voltammetry and mini-CE-AD approaches. Four target analytes were separated within 7 min in 50 mM Na2B4O7-NaOH buffer (pH 9.35) at a separation voltage of 3 kV. This developed method has been applied to the beer samples, and acceptable recovery could be obtained ranging from 84.5 to 108%. The assay results indicated that this AuNP/rGO composite electrode has the advantages of simple preparation, low working potential (+ 0.65 V vs. SCE), good sensitivity (0.13~0.87 μM), and satisfactory reproducibility. This proposed method provides an alternative for rapid analysis of food safety.
