A new dimeric Cu(II) complex [Cu(mu(2)-hep)(hep-H)](2).2PF(6) (1) containing a bidentate (hep-H = 2-(2-hydroxyethyl)pyridine) ligand was synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. Each Cu ion in 1 is in a distorted square pyramidal geometry. Further 1 is used as a modifier in the construction of a biomimetic sensor for(More)
An Amberlite XAD-2 (XAD2) and titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TNPs) modified glassy carbon paste electrode (XAD2-TNP-GCPE) was developed for the determination of imipramine (IMI), trimipramine (TRI) and desipramine (DES). The electrochemical behavior of these molecules was investigated employing cyclic voltammetry (CV), chronocoulometry (CC),(More)
The dissociation equilibria of ascorbic and maleic acids have been studied in certain cationic, anionic and non-ionic micellar media and their pK(a) values have been evaluated by the potentiometric, conductometric and spectrophotometric techniques. These pK(a) values have been found to shift in micellar media as compared to those in pure water. The(More)
A dimeric Cu(II) complex [Cu(μ(2)-hep)(hep-H)](2)·2ClO(4) (1) containing bidentate (hep-H=2-(2-hydroxyethyl)pyridine) ligand was synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. Each Cu-ion in 1 is in a distorted square pyramidal geometry. Further 1 along with silver nanoparticles (SNPs) have been used as modifier in the(More)
A glassy carbon paste electrode (GCPE) modified with a cation exchanger resin, Dowex50wx2 and gold nanoparticles (D50wx2-GNP-GCPE) has been developed for individual and simultaneous determination of acetaminophen (ACOP) and tramadol (TRA). The electrochemical behavior of both the molecules has been investigated employing cyclic voltammetry (CV),(More)
Carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) and halloysite nanoclay (HNC) modified carbon paste electrode (HNC-CNP-CPE) was developed for the determination of methyl parathion (MP) and ethyl parathion (EP). The electrochemical behavior of these molecules was investigated employing cyclic voltammetry (CV), chronocoulometry (CC), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)(More)
Different techniques have been used (physical adsorption, physically entrapped sandwich and microencapsulation) for the immobilization of urease enzyme in tetramethylorthosilicate (TMOS) derived sol-gel matrix on the sensing surface of glass-pH-electrode. No significant leaching of enzyme occurs from the microencapsulated and physically entrapped enzyme(More)
An electrochemical method based on potentiometric stripping analysis (PSA) employing a hexathia 18C6 (HT18C6) and rice husk (RH) modified carbon paste electrode (HT18C6-RH-CPE) has been proposed for the subnanomolar determination of antimony. The characterization of the electrode surface has been carried out by means of scanning electron microscopy, cyclic(More)
A coated-wire ion-selective electrode (ISE) based on cyclam (1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane) as a neutral carrier in a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) matrix was fabricated for the determination of Ag(I) ions. The coated-wire ISE exhibited a linear Nernstian response over the range 1 x 10(-1) to 1 x 10(-7) M with a slope of 59 +/- 2 mV per decade change and a(More)
Tetraazacyclotetradecane, tetratosyltetraaza 12C4, and tritosyltriaza 9C3 have been explored as electroactive materials for preparing coated wire ion-selective electrodes (CWISEs) for Cr(III) ions. The best performance was observed for the membrane comprising electroactive material (tetratosyltetraaza 12C4), plasticizer (dibutyl phthalate), and poly(vinyl(More)
