New Findings from J.A. Ardila and Co-Researchers in the Area of Clofibric Acid Described

May 30, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Clofibric Acid. According to news originating from Sao Carlos, Brazil, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "A highly sensitive method for bezafibrate determination using a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified with multi-walled carbon nanotubes within a dihexadecyl hydrogen phosphate film based on square-wave adsorptive stripping voltammetry (SWAdSV) is proposed. The electrochemical behaviour of bezafibrate has been studied by cyclic voltammetry, showing an irreversible anodic peak at a potential of 1.09 V in 0.1 mol L(-1) phosphate buffer solution (pH 2.0)."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "A study of the scan rate showed that the oxidation of bezafibrate is an adsorptive-controlled process, involving the transfer of two electrons and two protons per molecule. The analytical curve was linear over a bezafibrate concentration range from 50 to 910 nmol L(-1), with a detection limit of 16 nmol L(-1)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This analytical method was successfully applied for benzafibrate determination in pharmaceutical formulations, with results showing good agreement with those obtained using a comparative spectrophotometric method, and has the potential for field application."
