Physical and Theoretical


Linear sweep voltammetry of xanthine and xanthosine has been studied at a sweep rate of 10mVs−1 in phosphate buffers with different pH values. Based on the linear relation of peak current versus concentration, the simultaneous determination of both the compounds was carried out.
