A highly sensitive and mercury-free method for determination of bisphenol A (BPA) was established using a glassy carbon electrode that was modified with carboxylated multi-walled carbon nanotubes. A sensitive oxidation peak is found at 550 m V in linear sweep voltammograms at p H 7. Based on this finding, trace levels of bisphenol A can be determined over a concentration range that is linear from 10 n M to 104 n M, the correlation coefficient being 0.9983, and the detection limit (S/N = 3) being 5.0 n M. The method was successfully applied to the determination of Bpa in food package. A new electrochemical method was developed for the determination of bisphenol A based on carboxylated multi-walled carbon nanotubes modified electrode.
