Abstract

Carbon paste electrodes are often used for electrochemical determinations, but their application in media with high content of organic solvents, particularly in HPLC, is limited by their low stability. The work presented here examines the effect of a moving methanol-containing solution on a glassy carbon paste electrode by studying its electrochemical behavior in relation to the period of contact and methanol content in the solution. In combination with microscopic observation of the paste surface it can be concluded that the electrode is affected by the methanolic solution and the surface roughness increases, resulting in the stable state compatible with measurements in highly methanolic solutions.
