A novel assay is reported for the simultaneous determination of paracetamol and p-aminophenol using a poly(2,2 '-(1,4-phenylenedivinylene)bis-8-hydroxyquinaldine) modified glassy carbon electrode. Poly(2,2 '-(1,4-phenylenedivinylene)bis-8-hydroxyquinoline) modified electrodes were prepared by electrochemical polymerization. The electrode surface was characterized by scanning electron microscopy. The electrochemical behavior of the modified electrode was investigated by cyclic voltammetry, square wave voltammetry, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The anodic peak potentials for paracetamol and p-aminophenol were at 580 and 337 millivolts, respectively, with a separation of 243 millivolts, adequate for their simultaneous determination. The results showed that the linear dynamic ranges for paracetamol and p-aminophenol were 0.5-200 micromolar and 3-150 micromolars, whereas the limits of detection were 0.075 and 0.45 micromolar, respectively. The novel poly(2,2 '-(1,4-phenylenedivinylene)bis-8-hydroxyquinaldine) modified electrode provided excellent selectivity, sensitivity, and stability and was employed for the determination of paracetamol and p-aminophenol in pharmaceutical products and urine.
