Hydrogen Sulfide Sensor with Boron Electrodes Doped Diamond

2019 - LPDP

We studied an oxidation reaction of dissolved hydrogen sulfide using boron doped diamond (BDD) electrodes and 0.1 mol L?1 KClO4 as an electrolyte. Oxidation of H2S and HS? started at potentials of +1.7 V and + 0.5 V (vs. Ag/AgCl), respectively. In order to study the oxidation behavior, the effects of pH and the scan rate were investigated. Moreover, as demonstrated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, no sulfur fouling was detected on the BDD surface. A linear calibration curve was observed in the concentration range of 0.08–2.34 mg L?1 (r2 = 0.99) with a detection limit of 0.82 μg L?1 (S/N = 3). In addition, an interference test with CO2 was performed, which showed there was no significant interference to the sensor.
