Abstract: A simple and reliable method for simultaneous electrochemical determination of ascorbic acid (AA) and dopamine (DA) is presented in this work. It was based on the use of the cationic surfactant cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) that enables the separation of the oxidation peaks potential of AA and DA. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) as well as pulse differential voltammetry (PDV) were used in order to verify the voltammetric behaviour in micellar media. In the cationic surfactant CPC, a remarkable electrostatic interaction is established with negatively charged AA, as a consequence, the oxidation peak potential shifted toward less positive potential and the peak current increased. On the other hand, the positively charged DA is repelled from the electrode surface and the oxidation peak potential shifts toward more positive potential in comparison to the bare electrode. Therefore, the common overlapped oxidation peaks of AA and DA can be circumventing by using CPC. Parameter that affects the E-pa and I-pa such as CPC concentration and pH were studied. Under optimised conditions, the method presented a linear response to AA and DA in the concentration range from 5 to 75 mu mol L-1 and 10 to 100 mu mol L-1, respectively. The proposed method was successfully applied to the simultaneous determination of AA and DA in dopamine hydrochloride injection (DHI) samples spiked with AA. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V.
