Mesoporous Pd@Pt nanoparticles possess high surface areas while still maintaining electroconductivity and low potential for agglomeration. By introducing L- or D-DOPA (3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine) enantiomers during the synthesis of the mesoporous Pd@Pt nanoparticles, we can create a Pt shell that is sensitive to the chirality of the DOPA molecule. We demonstrate sensitive electrochemical detection of DOPA enantiomers.
