Abstract

Pyrolyzed photoresist carbon electrodes modi- fied with bismuth (Bi-PPCEs) were prepared and used for the determination of trace levels of chromium. In order to lower the detection limit, the choice of the sup- porting electrolyte concentration and electroanalytical pa- rameters were optimized. The adsorptive cathodic strip- ping voltammetric determination of Cr(VI) at Bi-PPCE was selective even in the presence in Cr(III). A detection limit of 0.1 m gL 1 was obtained after 60 s preconcentra- tion. After oxidation with UV light and oxygen, all chro- mium species were oxidized to Cr(VI) and the total inor- ganic Cr determination is possible. Finally, Bi-PPCE was applied to trace Cr(VI) analysis in real samples such as waste water and tap water
