© 2018 Elsevier B.V. The graphene or graphite analogous transition metal dichalcogenides have been received as an exciting new type of electrode materials in various electrochemical applications. In this work, we have demonstrated the synthesis of europium doped molybdenum diselenide nanoflower (EuMoSe2) by using the simple hydrothermal method and characterized by using different analytical techniques. Especially, the XRD and Raman spectroscopy techniques provided the information on the crystal structure of EuMoSe2. And also, the flower-like nanostructure with protruded few-layer nanosheets of EuMoSe2 was clearly observed by using SEM and TEM analysis. Further, the EDX and XPS analysis also evidently scrutinized the formation of EuMoSe2 nanoflower. Furthermore, electrochemical activity of EuMoSe2 nanoflower towards the detection of diphenylamine (DPA) was studied by using various electrochemical methods such as cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). As the result, the EuMoSe2 modified glassy carbon electrode (EuMoSe2/GCE) exhibited an excellent electrocatalytic activity for the detection of DPA with a low detection limit (8.8 nm), which is strongly associated to the calculated low charge transfer resistance (10.23 Ω), excellent active surface area (0.117 cm2), and charge transfer coefficient (0.58). Finally, the real-time application of EuMoSe2/GCE was also tested by using apple juice.
