We report an electrochemically fabricated silicon oxide nanoporous structure for ultrasensitive detection of AfB1 in food by shift in peak frequency corresponding to maximum sensitivity. It has been observed that the impedance sensitivity changes from 19% to 40% (which is only twice) where as the peak frequency shifts from 500 Hz to 50 kHz, for a change in concentration from 1 fg/ml to 1 pg/ml. This has been attributed to the combined effect of the significant pore narrowing with increasing AfB1 concentration and the opposing nature of impedance change within the nanopores and the conducting substrate immediately below the nanoporous layer.
