Gold Nanoparticles-Cysteine-Multiwall Carbon Nanotube Modified Electrode for Heavy Metal Ions Detection
MetadataShow full item record
The environmental contamination by heavy metals is one of the global problems that disturb the ecological balance. A platform for the simultaneous electrochemical detection of trace heavy metal ions has been developed based on the gold nanoparticles-cysteine-multiwall carbon nanotubes (AuNPs-Cys-MWCNTs) modified carbon paste electrode using square wave anodic stripping voltammetry. The voltammetric method was optimized with respect to accumulation time, accumulation potential and other parameters. The syntheses of AuNPs-Cys-MWCNTs composite with different AuNPs diameters were described and characterization using Dynamic light scattering and Scanning electron microscopy was performed. The AuNPs-Cys-MWCNTs composite significantly increases the electrode sensitivity towards Cd(II), Pb(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II). The AuNPs- Cys-MWCNTs composite has promising significance for future using, for example as a modification of the screen printed electrodes (SPEs), which would be used for low-cost and fast in situ measurement.
