Abstract

Linear scan voltammetry (LSV), differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) and voltammetry with adsorptive accumulation (AAV) at a glassy carbon paste electrode (GCPE) based on mixing glassy carbon spherical microparticles with an organic pasting liquid were used for the determination of trace amounts of carcinogenic 1-nitropyrene (1-NP) (the limit of determination around 2.10-5 mol L-1 for LSV and 2.10-6 mol L-1 for DPV) and 1-aminopyrene (1-AP) (the limit of determination around 3.10-6 mol L-1 for LSV, 1.10-6 mol L-1 for DPV and 1.10-7 mol L-1 for AAV) using a Britton-Robinson buffer – methanol mixture as a base electrolyte. The main advantage of this new type of electrode is its full compatibility with media containing a high amount of organic solvent (methanol, acetonitrile)
