 en Utilization of Plant Refuses as Component of Heavy Metal Ion Sensors in Water Samples
Mojica, Elmer-Rico E. & Micor, Jose Rene L.


Waste materials like fruit and vegetable refuses were utilized as component of sensors capable of detecting heavy metals like lead ions and mercury ions by electrochemical method. The ability of the fabricated sensors to detect the presence of heavy metals was analyzed using electrochemical methods like cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry. Results showed that the fabricated electrode were able to detect the presence of mercury and lead ions in aqueous solutions.
