Developing a simple, rapid detection method for the analysis of edifenphos (EDI) is crucial due to its residue is harmful to acetylcholinesterase on the human cellular system, and cause a lot of complications. Herein, we synthesized visible light-responsive MoS2 nanosheets decorated with Zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) nanoparticles (ZnPc/n-MoS2). Due to the sensitization of ZnPc nanoparticles, the resulting ZnPc/n-MoS2 exhibited narrower energy bandgap and efficient charge transfer. Especially, the carrier lifetime of ZnPc/n-MoS2 is 2 more times longer than n-MoS2, and the photocurrent intensity of ZnPc/n-MoS2 is 24 times of n-MoS2 and 22 times of ZnPc nanoparticles under visible light irradiation. Further, a visible light-responsive ultrasensitive photoelectrochemical (PEC) aptasensor for selectivity recognition of EDI was triumphantly established by using EDI aptamer as a biorecognition element, which exhibited a wide linear ranking from 5 ng L-1 to 10 μg L-1 (R2 = 0.996) and a low detection limit of 1.667 ng L-1 (S/N = 3). The splendid performance of the ZnPc/n-MoS2 nanosheet ultrasensitive sensing platform can be applied to detect the concentration of EDI in food, biomedical and environmental analysis.
