ABSTRACT A simultaneous electrochemiluminescence (ECL) and electrochemical (EC) detection scheme for NACE was presented for fast analysis of tertiary amines. Both ECL and EC signals were generated at the same Pt electrode. Triethylamine (TEA), tripropylamine (TPrA), chlorpromazine, promethazine, and dioxopromethazine (DPZ) were selected to validate NACE-ECL/EC dual detection strategy. The linear ranges for TEA and TPrA were 0.01-500 and 0.01-10 microM with the detection limits of 8.0 and 5.0 nM (S/N=3), respectively. The RSDs (n=6) of the migration time and the ECL intensity for 1 microM TEA and 0.5 microM TPrA were 0.1 and 2.8%, and 0.2 and 1.8% with theoretical plate numbers of 180,000 and 700,000 per meter, respectively. These two analytes could be separated within 92 s and the Pt electrode did not need reactivation during the experiments. Chlorpromazine, promethazine, and DPZ could be well separated by NACE. The proposed method was also demonstrated for fast determination of DPZ in human urine with simple sample preparation. The results indicated that NACE-ECL/EC had the advantages of simple and fast analysis with more information, wide linear range, high sensitivity, and compatibility with real urine sample.

    ABSTRACT: A portable reconfigurable instrument platform for electrochemiluminescence (ECL)-based disposable screen-printed electrodes is described. The reader unit consists of a potentiostat and a photodiode as a light-to-current converter integrated in the same instrument. For powerful and versatile analog conditioning, a very recent electronic solution has been included: a Field Programmable Analog Array (FPAA) capable of reconfiguring filter and gain stages in real time. To check the instrument's performance as a sensor platform, two luminophores (tris(2,2′bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) and luminol) and two representative correactants widely used, triethylamine and cholesterol, were selected. The calibration functions obtained show a linear dependence with dynamic ranges from 0.05 to 10.0 mg l−1 for triethylamine, and 2.0·10−5–1.4·10−4 M for cholesterol, with detection limits of 0.2 mg l−1 and 1.1·10−5 M, respectively, and a sensor-to-sensor reproducibility (relative standard deviation, RSD) of around 3.2% and 3.3% respectively at the medium-range level. This instrument offers a new advance in the portability of electrochemiluminescent determinations.

    ABSTRACT: The coupling of end-column tris (2,2′-bipyridyl) ruthenium (II) electrochemiluminescence (ECL) detection with capillary electrophoresis (CE) was developed for the analysis of two antipsychotic drugs, perphenazine (PPH) and fluphenazine (FPH). The parameters related to CE separation and ECL detection, including the detection potential, the buffer pH value and concentration, the separation voltage, and Ru(bpy)32+ concentration, were investigated in detail. Under optimum conditions, PPH and FPH were well separated and detected within 11 min. The linear ranges were 0.1–5 μM for PPH, and 0.1–7.5 μM for FPH, respectively. The limits of detection of PPH and FPH were 5 and 10 nM (S/N=3). The relative standard deviations (n=3) of the ECL intensity and the migration time were less than 2.5 and 0.65% in a day, and less than 3.4 and 1.7% in different three days. The proposed method was successfully applied to determine PPH and FPH in spiked urine samples with satisfactory results.

    ABSTRACT: Electromigrative techniques such as capillary and microchip electrophoresis (CE and MCE) are inherently associated with various electrochemical phenomena. The electrolytic processes occurring in the buffer reservoirs have to be considered for a proper design of miniaturized electrophoretic systems and a suitable selection of buffer composition. In addition, the control of the electroosmotic flow plays a crucial role for the optimization of CE/MCE separations. Electroanalytical methods have significant importance in the field of detection in conjunction with CE/MCE. At present, amperometric detection and contactless conductivity detection are the predominating electrochemical detection methods for CE/MCE. This paper reviews the most recent trends in the field of electrochemical detection coupled to CE/MCE. The emphasis is on methodical developments and new applications that have been published over the past five years. A rather new way for the implementation of electrochemical methods into CE systems is the concept of electrochemically assisted injection which involves the electrochemical conversions of analytes during the injection step. This approach is particularly attractive in hyphenation to mass spectrometry (MS) as it widens the range of CE-MS applications. An overview of recent developments of electrochemically assisted injection coupled to CE is presented.
