An electrode made with a conductive carbon cement (CCC) matrix and modified with cobalt phthalocyanine was utilized for the detection of some thiols of pharmaceutical interest: captopril, thiopronine, penicillamine.

Abstract

An electrode made with a conductive carbon cement (CCC) matrix and modified with cobalt phthalocyanine was utilized for the detection of some thiols of pharmaceutical interest: captopril, thiopronine, penicillamine. The performance of the electrode and the influence of pH were examined by hydrodynamic voltammograms and compared with those of unmodified CCC and glassy carbon electrodes. Calibration curves were performed in aqueous solutions at acidic pH in the range 5x 10-6 to 1 x 10-4 M. Stability experiments showed that electrode esponse in flowing solutions decreased about 1% for hour. Satisfactory liquid chromatographic (LC) separation by everse phase was obtained for the three compounds. Limits of detection reached with LC were in the range of pmoles. The modified electrode showed quite satisfactory performance: good sensitivity, good stability and detection of low concentration of the examined thiols.
