In this dissertation, to sense glucose levels in individuals, a number of design technologies have existed. The main object is to design a highly selective and sensitive device for glucose sensing. With the prime focus on a blood glucose sensor and work did so far in this particular field along with gaps of the study presented here
Papa et al.  proposed a highly sensitive glucose detection method through functionalized carbon nanotube buckypaper as a free-standing electrode in an electrochemical biosensor. In order to oxidize glucose resulting in a measurable current/voltage signal output of the biosensor, the glucose oxidase was immobilized onto a number of buckypaper samples. It was concluded that buckypaper electrodes can be used to fabricate glucose sensing strips in a more commercial way than the currently available strips.
Berisha et al.  anticipated the use of Tin (IV) oxide as a bulk mediator in carbon paste and carbon ink screen-printed electrodes to improvise the performance of the carbon electrodes by comparing unmodified electrodes for the detection of hydrogen peroxide, From modified carbon paste electrode a new glucose biosensor was developed and coated with glucose oxidase captured in Nafion was investigated with a flow injection system. The amperometric response of the biosensor exhibited good linearity up to 200 mg/L with a detection limit (3σ) of 6.8 mg/L.
Nazoki et al.  proposed high-quality ZnO nanorods using zinc nitrate (Zn (NO3)2) and hexamethylene-tetramine ((CH2)6N4) grown on different substrates. The GaN substrates grown with high-quality ZnO nanorods by the hydrothermal growth technique had demonstrated the potential application as a glucose sensor with-out oxidase. For the glucose concentrations, good linearity and high sensitivity were attained of 0.5 – 30 mM in the calibration curve. The calibration curve was not influenced by the presence of bovine serum albumin (BSA), ascorbic acid (AA) and uric acid (UA), which are also included in human blood and the estimation of glucose concentrations in human blood could cause interference.
Kamaldeep et al.  established that the nanostructured Zinc oxide (ZnO) was intrinsically electro-catalytic by nature and thus applied the same for the construction of biosensors. The nanoparticles were first prepared from metal oxide and then those were joined with glucose oxidase (GOx). The current reaction of ZnO nanoparticles containing the enzymes electrode increase from 0.78 to 22 μAcm-2 in 10 mM solution of glucose. The optimal circumstances for active current response were pH, working potential and temperature and average life span.

The sensing sensitivity of the ZnO-based glucose biosensors with passivated ZnO nanorods was significantly enhanced to 20.33 μAmM−1cm−2.
Qiua et al.  fabricated a novel amperometric glucose biosensor in situ incorporating glucose oxidase (GOx) within the sol-gel silica film on a Prussian blue (PB) modified electrode. The technique was simple and controllable, which shared the merits in situ immobilizing biomolecules in sol-gel silica film by electrochemical method and the synergic catalyst properties of PB and GOx molecules. Time responsePatel et al.  fabricated an electro-enzymatic glucose sensor using a novel self-aligned and hybrid polymer process. The self-aligned production process was carried out using polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as a process substrate material, SU-8 as sensor structural material, and gold as an electrode material. The thickness of the sensors was stately between 166.15 and 210.15 μM.
Yaoyin Li et al.  Fe1_x NixS2 exhibited excellent presentation for detection of enzymeless glucose. The Fe1_xNixS2 linear range was equivalent with that of noble metals. The linear range of Fe1_xNixS2 was wider than that of transition metal oxides. The linear range of Fe1_xNixS2 was wider than that of transition metal sulfides. The sensitivity of Fe0.7Ni0.3S2 is higher sensitivity than that of noble.
Lele Ju et al.  investigated the enzymeless Amperometric Glucose Sensor Based on Copper Nanowires Decorated Reduced Graphene Oxide, here synthesized simple one-step wet-chemical synthetic process consisting Nanocomposite one-dimensional copper nanowires and two-dimensional reduced graphene oxide Nanosheets (CuNWs/rGO) The CuNWs/rGO hybrids exhibited an excellent electrocatalytic activity toward glucose oxidation due to the superior conductivity along one-dimensional direction and catalytic activity of Cu NWs and rapid electron transfer in the two-dimensional rGO sheets. It shows A wide linear range up to 11 mM, high sensitivity (1625 μA / mM-cm-2), low detection limit (0.2 mM) and fast response ( Dita Arifa Nurani et al.  investigated on Electrodeposited Copper on Carbon Paste Electrode (Cu/CPE) at constant potentials. The non-enzymatic glucose sensor has much attention due to their applications in glucose monitoring. The electrodeposition of Cu is varied, i.e. the Electrodepositing time 60s, 120s, and 180s and potential reduction -0.166 V, -0.266 V and -0.366 V. The working electrodes in sensing glucose was investigated. The Cu/CPE which is used -0.366V potential reduction and 120s electrodeposition time show the best performance. The amperometric response current in concentration range 1.6-62.5 mM of glucose gives the good linearity R² = 0.9988, low detection limit 0.6728 mM and high sensitivity 1183.59.
