Electrochemical Oxidation of Biological Amines on the Electrodes Modified with Hydrophobic Monolayers
The electrodes modified with hydrophobic monolayers were applied to detect electrochemically an indicator hormone for biological rhythm, melatonin, without separation preocesses. It was demonstrated that octanol-modified glassy carbon electrode could be available to oxidize melatonin selectively to a certain degree against the interfering substances and that the modified layer was stable under the high positive potential application for the detection of melatonin.
