Graphical Abstract:


In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and vitamin B12 (VB12) were fabricated on the surface of glassy carbon electrode (GCE). This modified electrode (MWCNTs/VB12/GCE) was designed to determine p-hydroxyacetophenone (p-HYD) by square wave voltammetry. The MWCNTs/VB12 film was characterized by Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, which exhibited excellent electrocatalytic activity toward p-HYD by using square wave voltammetry. The peak current was linear with the concentration of p-HYD over the range of 0.5 - 250 µM with the detection limit of 0. 15 µM (S/N = 3). Furthermore, this proposed sensor has also demonstrated good reproducibility, high stability and excellent anti-interference ability.

Keywords: Multi-walled carbon nanotubes, P-hydroxyacetophenone, square wave voltammetry, vitamin B12.
