Herein, we report a novel composite fabricated via embedding rod-like Co based metal-organic framework (Co-MOF-74) crystals into MC matrix for the first time. The introduction of MC astricts the size of Co-MOF-74 crystals, enlarges the pore size and improves the electrical conductivity, which lead to the good electrochemical properties of the composite. The fabricated sensor based on Co-MOF-74@MC exhibits superior electrocatalytic activity toward the reduction of pyrazinamide (PZA) and the oxidation of isonicotinyl hydrazide (INZ). Under optimized conditions, the sensor shows two linear ranges from 0.3 to 46.5 μM and 46.5–166.5 μM with a high sensitivity of 7.2 μA μM−1 cm−2 and a detection limit of 0.21 μM for the determination of PZA. The electroanalytical sensing of INZ also gives two linear ranges of 0.15–1.55 μM and 1.55–592.55 μM with a detection limit of 0.094 μM. The mechanism involved was also discussed, briefly. The sensor is assessed toward the detection of PZA and INZ in human serum and urine samples. Recovery values varied from 97.08 to 103.20% for PZA sensing and 96.67–102.90% for INZ sensing, revealing the promising practicality of sensor for PZA and INZ detection.
