|Title:||In situ immobilization of cobalt phthalocyanine on the mesoporous carbon ceramic SiO2/C prepared by the sol-gel process. Evaluation as an electrochemical sensor for oxalic acid|
|Abstract:||The mesoporous carbon ceramics SiO2/20wt%C(S-BET = 160 m(2) g(-1)) and SiO2/50 wt%C(S-BET = 170 m(2) g(-1)), where C is graphite, were prepared by the sol-gel method. Scanning electron microscopy images and the respective element mapping showed that, within the magnification used, no phase segregation was detectable. The materials containing 20 and 50 wt% of C presented electric conductivities of 9.2 x 10(-5) and 0.49 S cm(-1), respectively. These materials were used as matrices to support cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc), prepared in situ on their surfaces, to assure homogeneous dispersion of the electroactive complex in the pores of both matrices. The surface densities of cobalt phthalocyanine on both matrix surfaces were 0.014 mol cm(-2) and 0.015 mol cm(-2) for materials containing 20 and 50 wt% of C, respectively. Pressed disk electrodes made with SiO2/50 wt% C/CoPc and SiO2/20 wt% C/CoPc were tested as sensors for oxalic acid. The electrode was chemically very stable and presented very high sensitivity for this analyte, with a limit of detection, LOD = 5.8 x 10(-7) mol L-1. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.|
