Detection of nitrite-ion has become very important for various industrial fields due to its wide application range such as food additives and a rust preventive agent for steels. In this study, we attempted at developing an advanced method to produce layered perovskite-type cuprates based thick-film device for highly sensitive electrochemical sensor for nitrite-ion with a capacity of wide concentration range. Here, layered perovskite-type oxide powders could be synthesized by a polymer precursor method which was deposited on alumina supports with gold electrode by an electrophoretic deposition method. The sensor performance was measured by an amperometric method for nitrite-ion detection. It was found that the Gd2CuO4-based electrode showed fast and good linear responses to nitrite-ion for a wide range of concentration.
