Biosensors have increasingly attracted attention in several areas due to their various advantages over conventional analytical techniques. They are currently used in the detection of various substances in medicine, in the control of industrial processes, in agriculture, environmental monitoring, and defence. Detection of the pesticides in environmental samples is an important concern due to the high toxicity of these compounds. Biosensors; are good alternatives for chromatographic methods in pesticide detection since they do not require tedious sample pretreatment, can be used in on-site detection and are economical.
