Electrochemistry of levo-thyroxin on edge-plane pyrolytic graphite electrode: application to sensitive analytical determinations, Article Electroanalysis ; Volume 23, Issue 8 , JUL , 2011 , Pages 1875-1880 ; 10400397 (ISSN) ; Shahrokhian, S ; Ghalkhani, M ; Sharif University of Technology
The electrochemical response of sodium levo-thyroxin (T4) at the surface of an edge plane pyrolytic graphite (EPPG) electrode is investigated using cyclic voltammetric technique in the presence of 0.1M HCl as supporting electrolyte. T4 underwent totally irreversible oxidation at this system and a well-defined peak at 821mV was obtained. Compared to the signals obtained in the optimized conditions at bare glassy carbon and carbon paste electrodes, the oxidation current of T4 at an EPPG electrode was greatly enhanced. The electrochemical process of T4 was explored and the experimental conditions were optimized. The oxidation peak current represented a linear dependence on T4 concentration from...
Highly sensitive voltammetric determination of lamotrigine at highly oriented pyrolytic graphite electrode, Article Bioelectrochemistry ; Volume 84 , 2012 , Pages 38-43 ; 15675394 (ISSN) ; Shahrokhian, S ; Sharif University of Technology
The electrochemical behavior of lamotrigine (LMT) at the pyrolytic graphite electrode (PGE) is investigated in detail by the means of cyclic voltammetry. During the electrochemical reduction of LMT, an irreversible cathodic peak appeared. Cyclic voltammetric studies indicated that the reduction process has an irreversible and adsorption-like behavior. The observed reduction peak is attributed to a two-electron process referring to the reduction of azo group. The electrode showed an excellent electrochemical activity toward the electro-reduction of LMT, leading to a significant improvement in sensitivity as compared to the glassy carbon electrode. The results of electrochemical impedance...
