The interaction of amphetamine (AM) drug with a zinc oxide (Zn12O12) nanocage was studied based on the density functional theory (DFT) in a B3LYP/LANL2DZ level of theory. The adsorption energy of the AM drug on the Zn12O12 surface was calculated to be about �14.09 kcal/mol, and this value confirmed the physical adsorption of the drug on the Zn12O12 surface. Also, based on the natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis, charge transfer occurred from the drug to the nanocage, and the value of charge was calculated to be about �0.139 e. In addition, both molecular orbitals show that the LUMO and HOMO are mostly located on the surface of the Zn12O12 nanocage. The mechanism of the sensors depends on the difference between the corresponding levels, which is also correlated with changes in electrical conductivity. The electrical conductivity of Zn12O12 was increased about 31.30 after AM drug adsorption. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.
