Abstract
Herein, a new electrochemical method was described for the determination of ciprofloxacin based on the enhancement effect of an anionic surfactant: sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS). In pH 4.0 phosphate buffer and in the presence of 1.0 × 10-4 mol/L SDBS, ciprofloxacin yields a well-defined and sensitive oxidation peak at the carbon paste electrode (CPE). Compared with that in the absence of SDBS, the oxidation peak current of ciprofloxacin remarkably increases in the presence of SDBS. The experimental parameters, such as supporting electrolyte, concentration of SDBS, and accumulation time, were optimized for ciprofloxacin determination. The oxidation peak current is proportional to the concentration of ciprofloxacin over the range from 8.0 × 10-8 to 5.0 × 10-6 mol L-1. The detection limit is 2.0 × 10-8 mol L-1 after 2 min of accumulation. This new voltammetric method was successfully used to detect ciprofloxacin in drugs.
