A highly sensitive amperometric sulfadiazine sensor fabricated by electrochemical deposition of poly(cobalt tetraaminophthalocyanine) (poly(Co(II)TAPc)) on the surface of a multi-walled carbon nanotubes-Nafion (MWCNTs-Nafion) modified electrode is described. This electrode showed a very attractive performance by combining the advantages of Co(II)TAPc, MWCNTs, and Nafion. Compared with the bare glassy carbon electrode (GCE) and the MWCNTs-Nafion modified electrode, the electrocatalytic activity of poly(Co(II)TAPc)-coated MWCNTs-Nafion GCE generated greatly improved electrochemical detections toward sulfadiazine including low oxidation potential, high current responses, and good anti-fouling performance. The oxidation peak currents of sulfadiazine obtained on the new modified electrode increased linearly while increasing the concentration of sulfadiazine from 0.5 to 43.5 μmol/L with the detection limit of 0.17 μmol/L.

    ABSTRACT: A new sensitive voltammetric sensor for determination of sulfadiazine is described. The developed sensor is based on carbon paste electrode modified with sulfadiazine imprinted polymer (MIP) as a recognition element. For comparison, a non-imprinted polymer (NIP) modified carbon paste electrode was prepared. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) methods were performed to study the binding event and electrochemical behavior of sulfadiazine at the modified carbon paste electrodes. The determination of sulfadiazine after its extraction onto the electrode surface was carried out by DPV at 0.92V vs. Ag/AgCl owing to oxidation of sulfadiazine. Under the optimized operational conditions, the peak current obtained at the MIP modified carbon paste electrode was proportional to the sulfadiazine concentration within the range of 2.0×10(-7)-1.0×10(-4)molL(-1) with a detection limit and sensitivity of 1.4×10(-7)molL(-1) and 4.2×10(5)μALmol(-1), respectively. The reproducibility of the developed sensor in terms of relative standard deviation was 2.6%. The sensor was successfully applied for determination of sulfadiazine in spiked cow milk and human serum samples with recovery values in the range of 96.7-100.9%.
