ABSTRACT Three-electrode configuration chips containing a Pt, Au and a screen-printed Ag/AgCl as counter, working and reference electrode, respectively, have been developed. Selective determination of Phenobarbital (PB) has been carried out by Cytochrome P450 2B4 (CYP450) immobilization into a polypyrrole matrix onto the gold working electrode. Chronoamperometric experiments show a PB diffusion coefficient of 2.42x10(-6)cm(2)s(-1), a reproducibility and repeatability in terms of residual standard deviation (RSD) of 13% and 5.51%, respectively, and a limit of detection (LOD) of 0.289 micromol dm(-3) (alpha=beta=0.05) for the developed CYP450-biosensor chip. Its performance has been showed by the determination of PB in pharmaceutical drugs. HPLC has been used as reference technique.

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments in the bioelectroanalysis of pharmaceutical compounds are reviewed, concentrating particularly on the development of electrode materials and measurement strategies and on their application. The advantages of electroanalytical techniques as alternatives to other analytical procedures such as rapid response, sensitivity and low detection limits are highlighted and illustrated. Particular emphasis is given to carbon-based materials for voltammetric electroanalysis; new potentiometric sensors and electrochemical biosensors are also reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: Considering the enzymatic activity of the cytochrome P450 2D6 on substrates such as codeine, the current paper includes the development of an enzymatic biosensor for detection of this drug. Home-made screen-printed electrodes were used as electrochemical transducers of the biosensor, in which the enzyme was covalently attached to the carbon surface of the working electrode, this type of modification being the most suitable for the immobilization of the biological element. Chronoamperometric measurements were carried out under optimum conditions of pH and working potential, pH 7 and +200mV vs. screen-printed Ag/AgCl electrode, giving a reduction signal related to the concentration of codeine in solution. Consecutive additions of a solution of codeine were performed to obtain calibration curves in order to validate the electrochemical method in terms of precision and calculate its capability of detection. These biosensors were used for the determination of codeine in urine and commercial pharmaceutical samples.
