A study on the simultaneous determination of Ni(II) and Co(II) dimethylglyoximates (Ni-DMG and Co-DMG) through adsorptive cathodic stripping voltammetry at an in situ bismuth-modified gold electrode (Bi-AuE) is reported. The key operational parameters, such as Bi(III) concentration, accumulation potential and accumulation time were optimized and the morphology of the Bi-microcrystals deposited on the Au-electrode was studied. The Bi- AuE allowed convenient analysis of trace concentrations of solely Ni(II) or of Ni(II) and Co(II) together, with cathodic stripping voltammograms characterized by well-separated stripping peaks. The calculated limit of detection (LOD) was 40 ngL1 for Ni(II) alone, whereas the LOD was 98 ngL1 for Ni(II) and 58 ngL1 for Co(II), when both metal ions were measured together. The optimized method was finally applied to the analysis of certified spring water (NIST1640a) and of natural water sampled in the Lagoon of Venice. The results obtained with the Bi- AuE were in satisfactory agreement with the certified values and with those provided by complementary techniques, i.e., ICP-OES and ICP-MS.
