A novel approach was proposed for the simple and rapid electrochemical determination of paracetamol (PC) in the presence of uric acid in body fluids. The voltammetric determination of PC is based on the electrochemical reduction of N-acetyl-p-benzoquinoneimine formed simultaneously on the electrochemically treated pencil graphite (ETPG) electrode during the(More)
In this study, a novel method was proposed for the selective determination of tryptophan (TRP) in blood serum in the presence of tyrosine. This method is based on the electrochemical reduction of 2-amino-3-(5-oxo-3,5-dihydro-2H-indol-3-yl)-propionic acid (5-O-3,5DH-TRP) formed by the oxidation of TRP on the electrochemically treated pencil graphite (ETPG)(More)
In this study, electrochemical removal of propachlor from water has been investigated by electro-Fenton process which provides continuous electrochemical production of hydroxyl radical which is a highly oxidizing agent. This radical can react with propachlor unselectively and can oxidize it into carbon dioxide and water. Effects of applied current, catalyst(More)
The electrochemical abatement of the drug ibuprofen (2-(4-isobutylphenyl)propionic acid) from aqueous solution has been carried out by anodic oxidation. The electrolyses have been performed at constant current using a small, undivided cell equipped with a Pt or thin-film boron-doped diamond (BDD) anode and a carbon-felt cathode. The results have shown that(More)
The removal of organophosphorous insecticide azinphos-methyl (AZPM) from water has been investigated by the electro-Fenton method which produces hydroxyl radicals electro-catalytically. The reaction between these radicals and AZPM has led to the oxidation of AZPM up to carbon dioxide and inorganic ions indicating its complete removal from water. The(More)
In this study, we have performed the preparation of over-oxidized poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) nanofibers modified pencil graphite electrode (Ox-PEDOT-nf/PGE) to develop a selective and sensitive voltammetric uric acid (UA) sensor. It was noted that the over-oxidation potential and time had a prominent effect on the UA response of the Ox-PEDOT-nf/PGE.(More)
We aim to report a case of abdominal wall mass formation secondary to gallbladder perforation and stone spillage occurring during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). A 73-year-old women presented with purulent discharge from one of her previous port sites one year after she underwent LC. The latter revealed a round opaque mass in an abscess like cavity, and(More)
In this study, electro-Fenton method was applied to acid red 88 (AR88) containing aqueous solutions for the removal of it from water. The mineralization of AR88 has been achieved by oxidation with hydroxyl radicals. These radicals were produced simultaneously by the electro-Fenton method using an electrochemical cell including a carbon felt cathode and a(More)
Materials and methods: This retrospective study was carried out at Sema Hospital in İstanbul, Turkey. The study subjects were recruited between January 2006 and August 2009. A glucose challenge test (GCT) was given to 1681 pregnant women and based on the results 494 went on to take an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). A diagnosis of gestational diabetes(More)
In this study, preparation of a single-use electrochemical sensor for the selective and sensitive determination of dopamine (DOP) was investigated by electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole-3-carboxylic acid on electrochemically over-oxidized pencil graphite electrode (p(P3CA)/EOPGE). Cyclic voltammetry measurements of Fe(CN)64-/3- indicated that the(More)
