Abstract: Ag@C core–shell structure composites were successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method, and then Ag nanoparticles were decorated on the surface of Ag@C by reduction of AgNO3. The morphology, composition and structure of the Ag@C@Ag composites were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Cyclic voltammetry and amperometry were used to evaluate the electrocatalytic performance of the Ag@C@Ag/GCE for detection of H2O2. Meanwhile, a new electrochemical method of zero current potentiometry was used for electrochemical detection of H2O2. The linear range and the detection limit were from 0.2 to 10, and 0.07 μM, respectively.
