Why is it important?

In this context, drug analysis is extremely important for quality control, to ensure that the medicine fulfills its role effectively without possible complications that could compromise the patient’s health and quality of life. In addition, analytical methods capable of determining compounds of clinical interest in biological fluids are extremely important for the indication of effective diagnoses.


From this review, it was possible to verify that the chemistry of nanomaterials is very dynamic. Applications such as determination of pharmaceutical compounds, disease diagnosis, and other medical applications justify the growing scientific interest in these materials. In this way, the electrochemical sensors became increasingly promising because of their relatively low cost compared to other conventional analytical methods, besides less reagent expense, quick and easy execution, making it possible and feasible to apply these devices in various analyses of environmental interest, food, and, in particular, analyses of drugs and compounds of clinical interest.
