Abstract

Graphene cyclodextrin prepolymer (pre-CD)-multiwall carbon nanotubes (Gr-CDP-MWCNTs) nanocomposites modified on glassy carbon electrode (Gr-CDP-MWCNTs/GCE) are prepared and then platinum particles (PtNPs) are electrodeposited on it. The simultaneous determination of hydroquinone (HQ) and catechol (CC) at PtNPs/Gr-CDP-MWCNTs/GCE is reported in the present work. Synergistic effect of nanomaterials, host-guest chemical reaction ability of CDP, the stacking interaction between detected molecules and Gr-MWCNTs surface are considered as the main reasons of successfully simultaneous detection of HQ and CC. Cyclic voltammetry (CV), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and different pulse voltammetry (DPV) are employed to characterize the proposed PtNPs/Gr-CDP-MWCNTs electrochemical biosensor. The prepared PtNPs/Gr-CDP-MWCNTs sensor shows linear response ranges of 0.05-27.2 μM and 0.1-27.2 μM and have low detection limits (S/N = 3) of 0.015 μM and 0.03 μM for simultaneous electrochemical determination of HQ and CC, respectively. It is also applied for the measurement of HQ and CC in local river water samples with recoveries from 98.0 to 102.0% and from 99.3 to 101.5%.
