Abstract: A theoretical treatment is presented to predict the kinetic behaviour of azithromycin at the surface of hanging mercury drop electrode using cyclic voltammetry. A model is developed to incorporate the occurrence of adsorption of the oxidized and reduced species of azithromycin at the surface of mercury drop electrode. An analytical solution was obtained using MATHEMATICA (V-3, Wolfram Research, Inc.) to predict the cyclic voltammetric profiles by calculating the currents resulting after applying variable potentials ranging –1.9 to –1.3 V versus Ag/AgCl. Simulation runs at different initial concentrations of azithromycin and different scan rates showed good agreement with experimental findings. However, this model should be modified to describe a multilayer adsorption with irreversible electrochemical reaction.
