|Title:||Preconcentration and voltammetric determination of mercury(II) at a chemically modified glassy carbon electrode|
|Abstract:||In this work, the organic compound 2-mercaptobenzimidazole was covalently bound on the surface of a glassy carbon rod, via silanization, yielding a material capable of selectively complexing Hg2- ions. This material was applied as an electrode for voltammetric determination of mercury(II) following its nonelectrolytic preconcentration. After exchanging the medium, the voltammetric measurements were carried out by anodic stripping in the differential pulse mode (pulse amplitude, 50 mV; scan rate, 1.25 mV s(-1)) using 10(-2) mol L(-1) NaSCN solution as supporting electrolyte. An anodic stripping peak was obtained at 0.06 V (vs SCE) by scanning the potential from -0.3 to +0.3 V, After a 5 min preconcentration period in a pH 4.0 Hg2+ solution, this electrode shows increasing voltammetric response in the range 0.1-2.2 mu g mL(-1), with a relative standard deviation of 5% and a practical detection limit of 0.1 mu g mL(-1) (5.0 x 10(-7) mol dm(-3)). Compared with the conventional stripping approach, this chemically modified glassy carbon electrode procedure presented good discrimination against interference from Cu(II) in up to 10-fold molar excess.|
