Electropolymerized film of 3,3′,3″,3‴-tetraaminophthalocyanatonickel(II) (p-NiIITAPc) on glassy carbon (GC) electrode was used for the selective and stable determination of 3,4-dihydroxy-l-phenylalanine (l-dopa) in acetate buffer (pH 4.0) solution. Bare GC electrode fails to determine the concentration of l-dopa accurately in acetate buffer solution due to the cyclization reaction of dopaquinone to cyclodopa in solution. On the other hand, p-NiIITAPc electrode successfully determines the concentration of l-dopa accurately because the cyclization reaction was prevented at this electrode. It was found that the electrochemical reaction of l-dopa at the modified electrode is faster than that at the bare GC electrode. This was confirmed from the higher heterogeneous electron transfer rate constant (k0) of l-dopa at p-NiIITAPc electrode (3.35 × 10−2 cm s−1) when compared to that at the bare GC electrode (5.18 × 10−3 cm s−1). Further, it was found that p-NiIITAPc electrode separates the signals of ascorbic acid (AA) and l-dopa in a mixture with a peak separation of 220 mV. Lowest detection limit of 100 nM was achieved at the modified electrode using amperometric method. Common physiological interferents like uric acid, glucose and urea does not show any interference within the potential window of l-dopa oxidation. The present electrode system was also successfully applied to estimate the concentration of l-dopa in the commercially available tablets.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
