|Title:||Dual amperometric biosensor device for analysis of binary mixtures of phenols by multivariate calibration using partial least squares|
|Abstract:||A simple and reliable method for rapid evaluation of mixtures of phenolic compounds (phenol/chlorophenol, cathecol/phenol, cresol/chlorocresol and phenol/cresol) using a dual amperometric device is described. This new approach is based on the difference between the sensitivity of laccase and tyrosinase for different phenolic compounds. A multichannel potentiostat was used to monitor simultaneously laccase- and tyrosinase-based biosensors, and the data were treated using the partial least squares (PLS) chemometric algorithm. This system showed an excellent efficiency for the resolution of the phenolic mixtures. For example, in the phenollchlorophenol mixture it was studied the determination of individual species in a concentration range from 1.0 x 10(-6) to 10.0 X 10(-6) mol l(-1) obtaining relative standard deviations of 3.5 and 3.1% for phenol and chlorophenol, respectively. The excellent correlation between the estimated and the real concentrations can also be observed by the correlation coefficients (0.9958 and 0.9981 for phenol and chlorophenol, respectively). These results show that proposed methodology can be successfully employed to the simultaneous determination of phenolic compounds in mixtures, even in more diluted solutions.
