Electrochemical monitoring of methyl parathion degradation based on carbon fiber microelectrodes (CFME)
The electrochemical degradation of methyl parathion (MP) has been investigated by using carbon fiber microelectrodes (CFME) as working electrode and acetate buffer pH 5.2 as supporting electrolyte. pnitrophenol (PNP) and p-aminophenol (PAP) recognized as by-products of MP degradation process have been detected and identified in real time using square wave voltammetry. This study shows for the first time that CFME could be used to follow MP degradation in real time and to identify its stables metabolites.
