Direct electrochemical detection of nanoparticles is of high importance of analytical chemistry and nanotechnology. We show here that molybdenum nanoparticles are readily oxidizable in phosphate buffer of neutral pH at - 5 mV (vs. Ag/AgCl). This open doors for direct detection of molybdenum with important implications for the use molybdenum nanoparticles as labels in electrochemical biosensors.
