While over half a century has passed since the introduction of enzyme glucose biosensors by Clark and Lyons, this important field has continued to be the focus of immense research activity. Extensive efforts during the past decade have led to major scientific and technological innovations towards tight monitoring of diabetes. Such continued progress toward advanced continuous glucose monitoring platforms, either minimal- or non-invasive, holds considerable promise for addressing the limitations of finger-prick blood testing toward tracking glucose trends over time, optimal therapeutic interventions, and improving the life of diabetes patients. However, despite these major developments, the field of glucose biosensors is still facing major challenges. The scope of this review is to present the key scientific and technological advances in electrochemical glucose biosensing over the past decade (2010-present), along with current obstacles and prospects towards the ultimate goal of highly stable and reliable real-time minimally-invasive or non-invasive glucose monitoring. After an introduction to electrochemical glucose biosensors, we highlight recent progress based on using advanced nanomaterials at the electrode-enzyme interface of three generations of glucose sensors. Subsequently, we cover recent activity and challenges towards next-generation wearable non-invasive glucose monitoring devices based on innovative sensing principles, alternative body fluids, advanced flexible materials, and novel platforms. This is followed by highlighting the latest progress in the field of minimally-invasive continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) which offers real-time information about interstitial glucose levels, by focusing on the challenges toward developing biocompatible membrane coatings to protect electrochemical glucose sensors against surface biofouling. Subsequent sections cover new analytical concepts of self-powered glucose sensors, paper-based glucose sensing and multiplexed detection of diabetes-related biomarkers. Finally, we will cover the latest advances in commercially available devices along with the upcoming future technologies.

Abstract Diabetes is a pathological condition that requires the continuous monitoring of glucose level in the blood. Its control has been tremendously improved by the application of point-of-care devices. Conventional enzyme-based sensors with electrochemical and optical transduction systems can successfully measure the glucose concentration in human blood, but they suffer from the low stability of the enzyme. Non-enzymatic wearable electrochemical and optical sensors, with low-cost, high stabil...

Supported Au clusters and nanoparticles can oxidize the coenzyme, 尾-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), under ambient conditions using O2 as an oxidant. The activity for NADH oxidation depends on the size of Au particles and the acidity of support materials. Au particles that have a higher ratio of surface Au atoms gave higher NAD+ yield, and the terrace sites of Au particles would play a key role in NADH oxidation. Au atoms on the terrace sites of Au particles are more important than thos...

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has become a widely used tool in the ambulatory setting for monitoring glucose levels, as well as detecting uncontrolled hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, and glycemic variability. The accuracy of some CGM systems has recently improved to the point of manufacture with factory calibration and Food and Drug Administration clearance for nonadjunctive use to dose insulin. In this commentary, we analyze the answers to six questions about what is needed to bring CGM into...

Existing electronic skin (e-skin) sensing platforms are equipped to monitor physical parameters using power from batteries or near-field communication. For e-skins to be applied in the next generation of robotics and medical devices, they must operate wirelessly and be self-powered. However, despite recent efforts to harvest energy from the human body, self-powered e-skin with the ability to perform biosensing with Bluetooth communication are limited because of lack of a continuous energy source...

Abstract null null Large-scale growth of three-dimensional (3D) carbon nanostructure via a template-free method remains challenging. In this work, a millimeter-scale carbon nanorod array (CNA), via thermal catalysis with nickel as the catalyst, is directly synthesized on the substrate of boron-doped diamond (BDD). Electron microscopies evidence the phenomena of independent growth of a single carbon nanorod and the fusion of two or more nanorods, and demonstrate that the inner area of carbon nano...

Abstract null null Transition metal sulfides (TMSs) are expected to be a new type of electrode material due to their excellent electrochemical activity. However, the poor capacity retention and stability of TMSs are obstacles to their practical application. Here, the porous hollow nickel-cobalt sulfides are fabricated via a simple water bath followed by anion exchange, which can be regulated by N-doped carbon dots (NCDs). Newly designed porous hollow structure provides more active sites, a cavit...
