Abstract

A (9,10-dihydro-9,10-ethanoanthracene-11,12-dicarboximido)-4-ethylbenzene-1,2-diol (DED) mo­di­fied NiO/NPs carbon paste electrode “(DED/NiO nanoparticle (NiO/NPs)/CPE) was constructed for determination of hydroxylamine (HX). The cyclic voltammogram showed that the electro­catalytic oxidation of HX at the surface of DED/NiO/NPs/CPE occurs at a potential of about 800 mV less positive than with an unmodified electrode. Square-wave voltammetry results presented that the electrocatalytic oxidation peak currents of HX in pH 8.0 had two linear dynamic ranges in the range of 0.1 to 2.0 and 2.0 to 400.0 µM HX, with a detection limit of 0.07 µM. The kinetic parameters such as electron transfer coefficient a (0.47) and rate constant (2.454 × 103 M-1 s-1) were determined for the chemical reaction between HX and DED. Finally, this method was evaluated for the determination of HX in water and waste water samples.
