Multi walled carbon nanotube modified carbon-ceramic electrode (MWCNT/CCE) was employed for the simultaneous determination of ascorbic acid (AA), dopamine (DA) and uric acid (UA). The MWCNT/CCE displayed very good electrochemical catalytic activities with respect to CCE. The oxidation over-potentials of AA, DA and UA decreased dramatically, and their oxidation peak currents increased significantly at MWCNT/CCE compared to those obtained at the bare CCE. Differential pulse voltammetry was used for the simultaneous determination of AA, DA and UA in their ternary mixture. The peak separation between AA and DA, and DA and UA was large up to 205 and 160 mV, respectively. The calibration curves for AA, DA and UA were obtained in the range of 15.00-800.00, 0.50-100.00, and 0.55-90.00 Î¼M, respectively. The detection limits (S/N = 3) were 7.71, 0.31, and 0.42 Î¼M for AA, DA and UA, respectively. The present method was applied to the determination of AA, DA and UA in human serum and some commercial pharmaceutical samples, using standard adding method and the results were quite promising.
