Abstract

Organophosphates are toxic compounds commonly used in agriculture, industry and warfare, making their detection a critical issue for public health and safety. Gold nanoparticles have emerged as a promising tool for the detection of organophosphates due to their unique optical properties and surface chemistry. This review discusses the various methods for synthesizing gold nanoparticles and their functionalization for improved organophosphate detection. The sensitivity and selectivity of the detection method are also discussed, as well as its potential applications in environmental monitoring, food safety, clinical diagnosis and industrial applications. The use of gold nanoparticle-based detection methods for organophosphates has the potential to provide a rapid, sensitive and reliable tool for the detection and monitoring of these toxic compounds in various fields.
