Flow Injective Determination of Thiourea by Amperometry
Joon-Woo Lee, Sun-Il Mho, Chong-Hong Pyun, In-Hyeong Yeo*
The amperometric responses of thiourea were studied in 0.1 M NaOH by flow injection analysis. D. C. amperometric and pulsed amperometric detection methods were applied for the determination of thiourea at novel metal electrodes such as Pt and Au. Triple-step potential waveforms were adopted in the pulsed amperometric detection. With an optimized pulsed waveform, the current for the oxidation of thiourea was examined with the variation of flow rate of carrier solution and with the change in the amount of sample injected. Gold working electrode turned out to be better in sensitivity and signal to noise ratio than Pt electrode in the pulsed amperometric detection of thiourea. Detection limit is estimated to be 5.33 × 10-5 M with this detection method.
