Electrogenerated chemiluminesence method for the determination of riboflavin at an ionic liquid modified gold electrode.


PMID 21030300

Abstract

A highly sensitive electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) method for the determination of riboflavin was developed based on the enhancement of ECL intensity of lucigenin at room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) modified gold electrode. RTILs modified gold electrode exhibited excellent electrochemical and ECL property to lucigenin system and the ECL intensity of lucigenin was greatly enhanced by riboflavin. The characterization of the RTILs modified electrode and the attractive performance of the sensitive ECL method for the determination of riboflavin were investigated. Under the optimized conditions, the ECL intensity was directly proportional to the concentration of riboflavin in the range from 5.0×10(-10) g/mL to 1.0×10(-8)g/mL with the detection limit of 1×10(-10) g/mL. The method has been applied to the determination of riboflavin in the pharmaceutical preparations with satisfactory recovery from 96% to 101%. This work demonstrates that the incorporation of ECL method with RTILs modified electrode is a promising strategy for the determination of organic compounds with high sensitivity and good reproducibility.
