An Innovative Electrochemical Sensor Ground on NiO Nanoparticles and Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes for Quantitative Determination of Nitrite
An electrochemical sensor ground on nickel oxide (NiO) nanoparticles and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) was exploited for the detection of nitrite. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) ensure the morphology of the nanocomposite consisted of NiO nanoparticle and MWCNTs. High Resolution
Transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) reveals that the structure of NiO nanoparticles and MWCNTs. Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) persuasively verified presence of the C, Ni and O element. The electrochemical character of the nanocomposite were researched by cyclic voltammetry
(CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), and the behavior of electrochemical oxidation to nitrite on NiO/MWCNTs/CP was explored by chronoamperometry. In tests, the NiO/MWCNTs/CP shown a sensitive current response toward nitrite, the oxidation peak current are linearly related
to nitrite concentration in the range from 10−6 M to 10−4 M (R = 0.997) with a sensitivity of 3.53 μA μM−1 and a detection limit of 0.25 μM (S/N = 3). The validity of utilizing the proposed electrode to
determine nitrite in tap water was also demonstrated.
