Conference paper


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.
