However, reducing the metal content in catalysts is still a challenge. Here, a facile synthesis of palladium (Pd) nanoparticle-embedded N-doped carbon fibers (Pd/N-C) through electropolymerization and reduction methods is demonstrated. The as-prepared Pd/N-C contains only 1.5wt% Pd. Under optimal conditions, bisphenolA is detected by using amperometry in two dynamic ranges from 0.1 to 10μm and from 10 to 200μm, and the obtained correlation coefficients are close to 0.9836 and 0.9987, respectively. The detection limit (DL) for bisphenolA is determined to be 29.44 (±0.77)nm.
