© 2017 The Authors. The development of sensor for azathioprine (ATP) determination is extremely important as its excess level in blood imposes carcinogenic threats. A sensitive, selective, reproducible and durable azathioprine sensor was demonstrated using a nanocomposite composed of Mn3O4 micro cubes and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs/Mn3O4 MCs). The composite was prepared through a facile hydrothermal method and its morphology, elemental, impedance and electrochemical properties were studied. The MWCNTs/Mn3O4 MCs was modified on the screen-printed electrode, and the resulting modified electrode displayed excellent electrocatalytic ability towards ATP and the reduction peak current was related to the concentration of ATP. The working range was 0.045-2530 μM and the detection limit was 4.3 nM (± 2.53). The method was successfully applied to the determination of ATP in spiked samples of human blood serum and tablets.
