We report the development of a simple and accurate analytical method to detect aminopyrine in seized cocaine samples using a platinum electrode. The quantification of aminopyrine was performed using square wave voltammetry (SWV), where the peak current response was found to increase linearly with aminopyrine concentration over the range 100-1000 mu mol L-1. The repeatability of the electrode response was determined to be 2.4% (n = 15), and the detection limit of the proposed method was estimated to be 22 mu mol L-1 (3 sigma/slope). The accuracy of the proposed method was evaluated comparing the measured aminopyrine concentration in seized cocaine sample to the value obtained by gas chromatography coupled to flame ionization detector (GC-FID). An addition and recovery protocol in seized cocaine samples was also performed. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
