The current paper is devoted to the fabrication and optimisation of ZnO nanowire (ZnONW) arrays for electrochemical glucose biosensor fabrication. The ZnO nanowires were fabricated by a two-step combination method. This includes radio-frequency (RF) sputtering of the ZnO seeding layer and hydrothermal growth of the nanowires in a solution containing zinc nitrate hexahydrate. Glucose oxidase has been immobilised on the nanowires, for use as the biorecognition molecule. The sensing characteristics of the biosensors based on this fabrication methodology were investigated in phosphate buffer solution using electrochemical techniques.
