Electrochemical behaviors of adrenaline at acetylene black electrode in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate.Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. 2006 Mar 01; 48(1):17-23.CS
The electrochemical behaviors of adrenaline at the acetylene black electrode in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) were investigated by cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results indicated that the electrochemical responses of adrenaline were apparently improved by SDS, due to the enhanced accumulation of protonated adrenaline via electrostatic interaction with negatively charged SDS at the hydrophobic electrode surface. This was verified by the influences of different kinds of surfactants on the electrochemical signals of adrenaline. The electrochemical parameters of the adrenaline oxidation were explored by chronocoulometry. Under optimal working conditions, the oxidation peak current at 0.57 V was proportional to adrenaline concentration in the range of 5.0x10(-8) to 7.0x10(-6) mol/L, with a low detection limit of 1.0x10(-8)mol/L for 70s accumulation by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). This method was applied to determine adrenaline in the hydrochloride injection sample. The results are satisfying compared with that by the standardized method of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
