Cetirizine is one of antihistamine (H1-receptor antagonist) drugs which many applied in medical and
pharmacy. Allergy prevalence increases recently, so that usage of this drug also increases. Therefore,
monitoring improvement need to be done. Usage of some surfactant types as mediator in increasing
sensitivity of cetirizine determination has been done by using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and square
wave voltammetry (SWV) techniques. The optimum composition of carbon paste electrode is
70:30% for graphite and paraffin, respectively. Potential interval to determination of cetirizine is 0 -
400 mV. Optimization some parameters have also been done to obtain optimum values of
measurement. The research found that optimum values such as accumulation potential, pulse
amplitude, frequency and scan rate are 1 mV, 25 mV, 15 Hz and 15 mVs-1, respectively. Based on
square wave voltammogram, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) shows the best performance
as mediator. The result shows that increase of peak current is equal to 5.01 times as effect of CTAB

Materials and Methods
Results and Discussion
All the electrochemical measurements were carried Cyclic voltammetry of cetirizine at the CPE out with voltammetric analyzer (Epsilon BASi) and voltammograms were recorded with a set of computer The voltammetric responses of 1x10-2 mol/L cetirizine from IBM. A three-electrode system, including carbon in potassium chloride solution at the carbon paste paste as working electrode, a platinum wire as electrode were investigated by using cyclic auxiliary electrode and Ag/AgCl electrode as voltammetry technique. Voltammogram of cetirizine reference electrode, was employed. All potentials (Fig. 1) is measured at certain potential interval. Determination of potential interval meant to know working area which will be applied. In this research, potential interval is applied to identify peak current of 1 x 10-2 mol/L cetirizine is 0.00 V to +0.30 V with In this research using materials such as cetirizine (pharmaceutical grade), potassium chloride, graphite, solid paraffin, copper wire, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS), and Triton Preparation of carbon paste electrode (CPE) The CPE was prepared by mixing solid paraffin and graphite powder in a small petri dish, and this mixture was then heated and homogenized. After that, the paste was pressed manually into the cavity of the electrode body, and the surface was smoothed against clean paper. Unless otherwise stated, the paste was Figure 1 Cyclic voltammogram of cetirizine
carefully removed prior to pressing a new portion into the electrode after every measurement. Composition Figure 1 shows cyclic voltammogram of cetirizine optimization of CPE is also done to obtain result of at potential interval from 0.00 V to +0.30 V. Oxidation and reduction peak current were located at A 10 mL volume of 0.1 mol/L potassium chloride containing a known concentration of cetirizine was To obtain carbon paste electrode with the best added into the electrochemical cell and purged with performance, optimization of electrode composition is purified nitrogen for 5 minutes to remove oxygen, and done. Composition ratio of graphite versus paraffin is nitrogen gas was passed over the solution during the made in various 50:50, 60:40, 70:30, 80:20, and 90:10 experiment. After cetirizine was accumulated under an %. The result found that the highest peak current is open-circuit for a certain time while stirring the obtained at composition ratio of graphite versus solution, cyclic voltammogram was recorded from 0.00 V to +0.30 V at scan rate, 50 mV/s. All of the measurements carried out at room temperature. Optimum parameter to determination cetirizine by Optimization and influences of surfactants Optimization of parameters in SWV technique is done Optimization of measurement parameter in square to get highest peak current. These parameter are step wave voltammetry technique is done to obtain the best potential (step E, mV), pulse amplitude (mV), performance of analysis, such as accumulation potential, pulse amplitude and frequency. In the same procedure above, influence of some surfactant types to improvement of analysis sensitivity Proceeding of The International Seminar on Chemistry 2008 (pp. 381-384) concentration range (below the critical micelle concentration (CMC)), but the degree of enhancement Figure 2 Composition optimum of the CPE
The potential wave form consists of a square wave of constant amplitude superimposed on a staircase wave form. The current is measured at the end of each half-cycle, and the current measured on Figure 4 Frequency optimization
the reverse half-cycle (ir) is subtracted from the current measured on the forward half-cycle (if) Among these surfactants, the oxidation peak (Fig.3). This difference current (if - ir) is displayed as current of cetirizine is the highest and the background current is the smallest in the presence of low concentration of CTAB. CTAB with hydrophobic C-H chain and hydrophilic head group can adsorb strongly at the surface of the carbon paste electrode via their hydrophobic interactions. Consequently, adsorbed CTAB induces cetirizine to adsorb at the electrode concentration of cetirizine. So the oxidation peak current of cetirizine increases significantly in the presence of CTAB. In the experimental, the CTAB concentration is 1.0 x 10-4 mol/L. Figure 3 Potential wave form for square wave 3.0
The result of optimization of some parameters influencing peak current of analysis is obtained at step potential, pulse amplitude, and frequency were 1 mV, 25 mV and 15 Hz, respectively. Figure 4 shows level of peak current is obtained at various frequencies. The scan rate cannot be directly investigated by the researcher in this technique, and is determined by step potential (step E) x square wave frequency. Thereby, scan rate optimum is obtained at 15 mV/s. Figure 5 Voltamogram of surfactant influence
The influences of surfactants, such as cationic The average peak current on determination of cetirizine in presence of triton X-100, CTAB, SDS (CTAB), anionic surfactant: sodium dodecyl sulfate and SDBS are 2.20, 3.88, 2.88, and 2,62 x 10-6 A (SDS) and sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS) (Fig.6). This research also find that improvement of and nonionic surfactant: triton X-100, on the oxidation peak current of cetirizine in presence of surfactant to peak current of cetirizine were examined. It is peak current of cetirizine without surfactant are 2.84 observed that all these surfactants can improve the times, 5.01 times, 3.72 times, and 3,38 times for oxidation peak current of cetirizine during a certain Proceeding of The International Seminar on Chemistry 2008 (pp. 381-384) respectively.
