Boron-doped nanocrystalline diamond (BDND) films were deposited on Si(100) by microwave plasma chemical vapor deposition using trimethyl boron as boron source. The surface morphology, microstructure, and electrochemical properties of the BDND films were investigated. Cyclic voltammograms indicated that the BDND film electrode exhibited good reversibility and repeatability of electrode reaction using [Fe(CN)6]3−/4− as redox couple. The non-enzymatic glucose sensor based on the as-prepared BDND film electrode without any modification was developed, and the selective detection of glucose in alkaline solution containing interference species of ascorbic acid and uric acid was demonstrated. The results showed that glucose can be directly oxidized with a wide linear range and high sensitivity, and selectively detected in the presence of uric acid and ascorbic acid in alkaline solution using the as-prepared BDND film electrode.
