Organophosphorus pesticides are widely utilized in agricultural fertility. However, their long-term accumulations result in serious damage to human health and ecological balance. Paraoxon (PAR) can block acetylcholinesterase in the human body, resulting in death. Thus, in this study, a molecularly imprinted electrochemical PAR sensor based on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs)/molybdenum disulfide nanoparticles (MoS(2)NPs) nanocomposite (MoS(2)NPs@MWCNTs) was proposed for selective tap water determination. A hydrothermal fabrication approach was firstly implemented to prepare MoS(2)NPs@MWCNTs nanocomposite. Afterwards, the formation of PAR imprinted electrochemical electrode was performed on nanocomposite modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) in presence of PAR as template and pyrrole (Py) as a monomer by cyclic voltammetry (CV) technique. Just after determining the physicochemical features of as-fabricated nanostructures by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), x-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectros-copy, and atomic force microscopy (AFM), the electrochemical behavior of the fabricated sensors was deter-mined through CV, differential pulse voltammetry (DPV), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The suggested imprinted electrode provided the acceptable limit of quantification (LOQ) and limit of detection (LOD) values of 1.0 x 10(-11) M, and 2.0 x 10(-12) M, respectively. As a consequence, the proposed PAR imprinted electrochemical sensor can be offered for the determining safe tap water and its utility.
