ABSTRACT

An electrochemical sensor based on polyaniline cobalt phtahlocyanito doped with cobalt oxide

nanoparticles was developed for the electrocatalytic oxidation of amitrole.FTIR, Electrochemical

impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and Bode plots were used in the characterization of the

synthesized modifiers CoTCPc, PANI, Co2O3NPs and to ascertain the chemical linkage between

CoTCPc and PANI while cyclic voltammetry, linear sweep, chronoamperometry and differential

pulse voltammetry were used to assess the electrocatalytic efficiency of the linked product

towards oxidation of amitrole. The surface area of the modified electrode was 0.40 cm2 and the

surface coverage was 7.60× 10-13 molcm2.The catalytic rate constant was of 6.26×105M-1s-1and

the apparent electron transfer rate constant was 8.84 × 10-3cm s-1.The adsorptionequilibrium

constant was 3.8× 103 M-1and Gibbs free energy was -20.42kJ. The limit of detection was 6.612

× 10-8M and the limit of quantification was 2× 10-7 M. Interference studies were done and the

electrode displayed the ability to detect both amitrole and nitrates. The electrode displayed good

reproducibility with lower oxidation potential at 0.8 V and high sensitivity towards amitrole.
