Electrochemical Sensor for the Determination of Hydrazine Using MWCNT/Dopamine Dithiocarbamate Modified Electrode

Authors(4) :-J. Kavitha, M. Devendiran, K. Krishna Kumar, S. Sriman Narayanan

An electrochemical sensor for the determination of hydrazine was developed using MWCNT/Dopamine dithiocarbamate (DDTC) modified electrode. DDTC was prepared using Dopamine and carbondisulphide in ammoniacal medium. The formation of DDTC was confirmed by FTIR spectroscopy. A modified electrode was prepared using the DDTC and was characterized by cyclic voltammetry. Hydrazine was found to undergo electrocatalytic oxidation with this modified electrode. Under optimal conditions, the modified electrode showed good performance for the electrocatalytic oxidation of hydrazine. The modified electrode exhibited a linear range from 1.9 M to 740.7 M with a correlation coefficient of 0.9984 for the determination of hydrazine. Hydrodynamic and chronoamperometric experiments have revealed that the modified electrode can be used for the determination of Hydrazine in flow systems.
