    • Abstract


      A sensitive and selective electrochemical sensor has been developed using an electroactive polynuclear lanthanum hexacyanoferrate (LaHCF) complex with counter alkali cation (Na+) deposited on the glassy carbon (GC) electrode (GC/LaHCF). The GC/LaHCF-modified electrode is found to be an excellent transducer in mediating the oxidation of neurotransmitter molecule such as dopamine (DA) at physiological pH 7.2. Interestingly, the GC/LaHCF-modified electrode amplifies a 50-fold enhancement in the oxidation of DA signal compared to the bare GC electrode. Besides, the GC/LaHCF-modified electrode shows excellent selectivity in the voltammetric oxidation of DA in the presence of ascorbic acid (AA). Under optimal conditions, the GC/LaHCF modified electrode shows a linear relationship in DA oxidation between $0.1 \times 10^{−6}$ and $1.0 \times 10^{−6}$M with the detection limit of $1 \times 10^{−8}$M (10 nM). Importantly, practical utility of the modified electrode is good in studying the real sample analysis such as dopamine hydrochloride injection assay.
