Selective voltammetric determination of d-penicillamine in the presence of tryptophan at a modified carbon paste electrode incorporating TiO2 nanoparticles and quinizarine, Article Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry ; Volume 644, Issue 1 , Jan , 2010 , Pages 1-6 ; 15726657 (ISSN) ; Beitollahi, H ; Taleat, Z ; Naeimi, H ; Taghavinia, N ; Sharif University of Technology
A carbon paste electrode (CPE) chemically modified with TiO2 nanoparticles and quinizarine (QZ) was used as a selective electrochemical sensor for the simultaneous determination of minor amounts of d-penicillamine (D-PA) and tryptophan (Trp). This modified electrode showed very efficient electrocatalytic activity for anodic oxidation of both d-PA and Trp. Substantial decreases of anodic overpotentials for both compounds made this analysis possible. Results of square wave voltammetry (SWV) using this modified electrode showed two well-resolved anodic waves for the oxidation of d-PA and Trp, which makes the simultaneous determination of both compounds possible. The peak potential for the...
