Modification of a glassy carbon electrode with a bilayer of multiwalled carbon nanotube/benzene disulfonate-doped polypyrrole: Application to sensitive voltammetric determination of olanzapine, Article RSC Advances ; Vol. 4, Issue. 76 , Aug , 2014 , pp. 40553-40560 ; ISSN: 20462069 ; Azimzadeh, M ; Hosseini, P ; Sharif University of Technology
A glassy carbon electrode was coated with a thin layer of multi-walled carbon nanotubes and subsequently was electro-polymerized with polypyrrole. The prepared electrode was used for the voltammetric determination of olanzapine (OLZ). The peak current of OLZ increases remarkably on the surface of the modified electrode. This is due to the large increase in the microscopic area of the electrode surface along with the strong adsorption of OLZ on the surface of the electrode. The film modifier was characterized by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and cyclic voltammetry techniques. Experimental variables, such as deposited amount of nanotube suspension, pH of the supporting...

In this study, direct electron transfer of myoglobin (Mb) on cadmium oxide (CdO) nanoparticles modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was investigated. Prepared CdO nanoparticles were studied by X-Ray diffraction (XRD) and UV-visible absorption methods. All electrochemical studies were performed by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and a potentiostat device. The cyclic voltammogram of Mb/ CdO Nps/ GCE showed a couple of stable redox and oxidative peaks at -470 and -370 mV at scan rate of 50 mVs-1, respectively. The formal potential (Eo) of myoglobin was calculated as -(420 ± 3) mV. Direct electrode transfer led to design a biosensor for determination of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The sensor sensitivity...

The electrochemical behavior of antioxidants daidzein (DZ) and 7-hydroxy-4-chromone (7-OH-4-CHM) was investigated. The oxidation of DZ is irreversible, pH-dependent, and occurs in two steps, the first of 4′-OH on the B-ring and the second on the 7-OH on the A-ring. The oxidation of 7-OH-4-CHM occurs on the 7-OH on the A-ring, is irreversible, pH-dependent and proceeds in a single step. The DZ diffusion coefficient was calculated in pH7.0 phosphate buffer to be D DZ=8.1×10 -5cm 2s -1. The detection limits of DZ and 7-OH-4-CHM was calculated as LOD DZ=0.08μM and LOD 7-OH-4-CHM=0.13μM
