Abstract

The reaction of electrochemically generated quinoid derivatives with sulfide has been investigated as a method of detecting the latter. Five structurally and functionally diverse precursor compounds (catechol, dopamine. hydroquinone. p-aminophenol and N,N-dimethylphenylene-1,4-diamine) were assessed as potential electrochemical indicators for aqueous sulfide. Each derivative is capable of forming a quinoid intermediate upon oxidation and all were found to respond to increasing concentrations of sulfide in pH 4 buffer (typically over a range extending from 10-300 muM sulfide). A number of strategies for relating the observed electrochemical signal to the concentration of sulfide are presented. The relative merits of each system are discussed and their analytical parameters (linear range, detection limits, redo?: potentials etc.) tabulated for ease of comparison.
