[en] The authors describe a voltammetric sensor for simultaneous determination of dopamine (DA), uric acid (UA), L-tyrosine (Tyr), and the diuretic drug hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). The assay is based on the use of graphene nanowalls deposited on a tantalum substrate. The nanowalls are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, and cyclic voltammetry. The nanowalls are vertically grown on the substrate by direct-current arc plasma jet chemical vapor deposition. The modified electrode is shown to enable simultaneous differential pulse voltammetric determination of DA, UA, Tyr, and HCTZ. The graphene nanowalls display a large specific surface, high conductivity, and a large number of catalytically active sites for oxidation of analytes. Simultaneous detection is performed best at a pH value of 7.0 and at peak potentials of 0.124 V (vs. SCE) for DA, 0.256 V for UA, 0.536 V for Tyr and 0.708 V for HCTZ. The respective detection limits are 0.04 μM, 0.1 μM, 0.6 μM and 0.4 μM. The results show that this graphene wall modified electrode is a promising tool for the design of sensitive, selective, and stable sensors. < Image>.
