Fabrication and Application of Poly(alizarin red S)-Carbon Nanotubes Composite Film Based Nitrite Sensor
Abstract:In this work, a novel electrochemical nitrite sensor for sensitive determination of nitrite based on poly(alizarin red S)-multi-wall carbon nanotubes (PARS-MWNTs) composite film on the glassy carbon electrode was described. The surface morphologies of different electrodes were characterized by scanning electron microscopy. Cyclic voltammetry, chronocoulometry and linear sweep voltammetry were used to investigate the electrochemical response and oxidation mechanism of nitrite at the PARS-MWNTs composite film based sensor. The experimental parameters were optimized, such as electropolymerization pH value, film thickness and detection pH value et al. Under optimal working conditions, the oxidation peak current of nitrite linearly increased with its concentration in the range of 30 nM to 1.1 mM with a low detection limit of 2 nM. The PARS-MWNTs composite film based nitrite sensor was applied to the determination of nitrite in sausage, and the good recovery indicated that it may have practical applications in nitrite monitoring system.
