The suitability of Ce(IV) in acidic medium as a post-column reagent in the liquid chromatographic (LC) amperometric determination of non-volatile nitrosamines was investigated by studying the Ce(IV)-Ce(III) couple with a rotating disk electrode, whose behaviour approaches the operational conditions of a "channel-thin-layer" cell with solid electrodes as frequently used for liquid chromatographic detectors.

The reaction between Ce(IV) and NO2- (which is the product of the decomposition of the nitrosamines in warm acidic solution) was considered.

Abstract

The suitability of Ce(IV) in acidic medium as a post-column reagent in the liquid chromatographic (LC) amperometric determination of non-volatile nitrosamines was investigated by studying the Ce(IV)-Ce(III) couple with a rotating disk electrode, whose behaviour approaches the operational conditions of a "channel-thin-layer" cell with solid electrodes as frequently used for liquid chromatographic detectors. The conditional kinetic parameters k0' and alpha were evaluated at platinum, glassy carbon and gold electrodes. Gold was found to be the most suitable material. The reaction between Ce(IV) and NO2- (which is the product of the decomposition of the nitrosamines in warm acidic solution) was considered. The biamperometric behaviour of the system was studied by varying the concentration of Ce(III) in presence of excess of Ce(IV) and also by producing Ce(III) by reaction between Ce(IV) and nitrite.
