New Findings from Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences in the Area of Acetanilides Described

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators discuss new findings in Acetanilides. According to news reporting originating in Tehran, Iran, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "An effective electrochemical sensor for the rapid and simultaneous determination of tramadol and acetaminophen based on carbon paste electrode (CPE) modified with NiFe2O4/graphene nanoparticles was developed. The structures of the synthesized NiFe2O4/graphene nanocomposite and the electrode composition were confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectrometry, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometry and scanning electron microscopy (SEM)."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences, "The peak currents of square wave voltammetry of tramadol and acetaminophen increased linearly with their concentration in the range of 0.01-9 mu mol L (1). The detection limit for their determination was found to be 0.0036 and 0.0030 mu mol L (1), respectively. The results show that the combination of graphene and NiFe2O4 nanoparticles causes a dramatic enhancement in the sensitivity of the sensor."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The fabricated sensor exhibited high sensitivity and good stability, and would be valuable for the clinical assay of tramadol and acetaminophen."
