Abstract

Electrochemically activated glassy carbon electrodes adsorbed with alizarin red S (ARS) were applied to the electroanalysis of metal species. Copper species were readily extracted onto the ARS modified electrode and were determined electrochemically. Experimental results showed that the voltammetric peak current resulted from copper incorporation on ARS modified electrodes was significantly larger than that obtained on bare activated electrodes. Voltammetric peak currents showed linear response for copper concentrations in the range between 0.001 and 0.15 mM with a slope of 1.77 A M-1 (correlation coefficient: 0.998). The reproducibility of the voltammetric measurements was found to be within 10% RSD for live replicate measurements on copper concentration of 0.10 mM. The modified electrodes could be applied for repeated copper determinations without appreciable deterioration in electrode response.
