- Demonstrated was a simple visual and rapid colorimetric sensor for detection of clenbuterol (CLB) based on gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) modified with cysteamine (CA) and characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS), UV–vis. The solution color from red to blue gray with increasing clenbuterol concentration resulted from the aggregation of AuNPs. The detection limit of clenbuterol is 50 nM by naked eyes. The selectivity of CA-AuNPs detection system for clenbuterol is excellent compared with other interferents in food. This sensor has been successfully applied to detect clenbuterol in real blood sample.
