Captopril can inhibit the nanozymatic activity of peroxidase-like carbon dots
The effect of captopril molecules on the nanozymatic activity of peroxidase-like carbon dots was evaluated. The carbon dots were synthesized and characterized for their enzyme-like activity. Thereafter, the effect of captopril molecules on their nanozymatic activity was evaluated by calculating their activity in the presence and absence of captopril, revealing that the relative activity of nanozymes was inhibited by increasing the inhibitor concentration and reached 23% of its initial activity. Hence, it can be concluded that captopril has a strong inhibitory effect on the nanozymatic behavior of peroxidase-like carbon dots.
