An electrochemical method for the determination of an antrallinic acid derivative based on nanoparticles modified electrode was studied through cyclic and differential pulse voltammetry. Modification of electrode with silver-doped titania nanoparticles enhanced the peak current for the electro-oxidation of Furantril. The silver-doped titania nanoparticles were prepared by simple wet chemical methods and characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray diffractometer (XRD). Silver-doped TiO2 voltamogramms suggested that pH 5.0 was suitable for electrochemical investigation of furantril. Rate constant, diffusion coefficient, electrode process and number of electrons involved were calculated. Based on these investigations a feasible mechanism for electrode reaction was presented. Limit of detection and quantification were found to be 1.98 nM and 6.6 nM respectively.
