Amperometric Determination of Hydrogen Peroxide With a ManganeseDioxide-modified Carbon Paste Electrode Using Flow InjectionAnalysis


A carbon paste electrode bulk modified with MnO 2 was investigated as an amperometric detector for hydrogen peroxide in flow injection analysis (FIA). With an operating potential of +0.46 V versus Ag/AgCl, H 2 O 2 produces catalytic oxidation currents which can be exploited for quantitative determinations. Factors influencing the analytical performance of the electrode, such as paste composition and pH, were studied both for batch voltammetry and for FIA. For the flow system the influence of the injection volume and flow rate were examined. The amperometric signals are linearly proportional to H 2 O 2 concentrations in the range 0.5–350 mg l - 1 , showing a detection limit (three times the signal-to-noise ratio) of 45 µg l - 1 .
