In this work, a sensor for the detection of dopamine (DA) based on electroactive polymer (PEI-Fc)/sulfonic acid-functionalized graphene oxide (SGO) multilayer film-modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) through layer-by-layer (LBL) method was fabricated. Attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy revealed the successful functionalization of GO into SGO with negatively charged sulfonic groups. The obtained PEI-Fc/SGO multilayer films were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and ultravioletvisible spectrometer (UV-Vis). Cyclic voltammetric studies demonstrated that the modified electrode presented enhanced electrocatalytic performance towards DA in terms of peak currents compared with bare GCE. The choronoamperometric results indicated that the modified electrode exhibited a wide linear range from 1 to 695 μM with a low detection limit of 0.255 μM towards the detection of DA. Besides, the modified electrode exhibited good selectivity, excellent reproducibility, and high stability of at least 1 month.
