Ascorbic acid (AA) is a highly water-soluble organic chemical compound and plays a significant role in human metabolism. For the purpose of food quality monitoring, this study focuses on the development of a smartphoneintegrated colorimetric and non-enzymatic electrochemical Corylus Colurna (CC) extract-Cu2O nanoparticles (Cu2O NPs) biosensor to detect AA in real food samples. The characterization of the CC-Cu2O NPs was determined using SEM, SEM/EDX, HRTEM, XRD, FTIR, XPS, TGA, and DSC. The CC-Cu2O NPs are cubic in shape with an approximate size of 10 nm. According to electrochemical results, the oxidation of AA at the modified electrode exhibited a LOD of 27.92 nmolL-1 in a wide concentration range of 0.55–22 mmolL-1. The fabricated digital CCCu2O NPs sensor successfully detected AA in food samples. This strategy provides a nanoplatform to determine the detection of AA in food samples.
