In this study, the first application of a capillary zone electrophoresis-electrochemical detection (CE-ECD) method for concurrent determination of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and ascorbic acid (AA), was developed using the Pt nanoparticles (PtNPs) modified Pt micro-disk electrode (PtME). The electrocatalytic activity of the modified electrode for H2O2 and AA was characterized by cyclic voltammetry. Under optimized experimental conditions, highly linear calibration plots were observed for both H2O2 and AA, with concentration linear ranges of 0.8 μM to 0.8 mM and 1.0 μM to 0.8 mM. Detection limits of 0.2 μM H2O2 and 0.5 μM AA were determined on the basis of the signal-to-noise characteristics (S/N=3) of an electropherogram. Compared with the unmodified PtME, the sensitivity was promoted in that PtNPs/PtME provided an increased effective electrode surface and high catalytic activity toward H2O2 and AA. Using this method, the added H2O2 and AA in Mizone, a kind of functional drink, were detected, and the concentration of AA was found to be 2.33 mM (n=3). The recovery rates were 95.3 % for H2O2 and 98.7 % for AA. The novel approach provided a wide linear range, low detection limit, good reproducibility and stability. It will provide a new insight into the balance of reactive oxygen species and antioxidant in biological systems.
