Surface enhancement of WO3 nanowires toward the oxidation and electrochemical detection of honokiol in traditional Chinese medicine.


PMID 22766287

Abstract

WO(3) nanowires (nano-WO(3)) were synthesized using a simple hydrothermal technique, and then used to modify the carbon paste electrode (CPE). The electrochemical behavior of honokiol on the unmodified CPE and nano-WO(3) modified CPE was compared. It was found that nano-WO(3) remarkably increased the oxidation signal of honokiol. The influences of supporting electrolyte, amount of nano-WO(3), accumulation potential and time were studied on the oxidation peak current of honokiol. Based on the strong enhancement effect of nano-WO(3), a sensitive, simple and rapid electrochemical method was developed for the detection of honokiol. The linear range was from 3×10(-8) to 2.0×10(-5)M, and the detection limit was as low as 1×10(-8)M after 2-min accumulation. Finally, it was used to determine honokiol in traditional Chinese medicines, and the recovery was over the range between 96.5% and 98.8%.
