An aptamer based electrochemical biosensor was designed for the detection of codeine. Polypeptidefunctionalized polymer (EBP) was coated on a glassy carbon electrode (GCE). Cysteamine modified gold nanoparticles (AuNP-Cys) were attached on the polymer coated electrode surface via glutaraldehyde through the amino functional groups of the polymer. Immobilization of aptamer was achieved via AuNP-Cys through Au–SH affinity. Surface modifications were studied via electrochemical techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectrometry, and differential pulse voltammetry. The designed sensor showed an excellent electrocatalytic response towards the sensing of codeine with a wide linear range.
