Abstract: In this paper, CuO nanoparticles have been electrodeposited onto the film of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) modified carbon paste electrode (MWCPE), which fabricated a sensitive nano-copper oxide coated multi-walled carbon nanotubes modified carbon paste electrode (CuOnano/MWCPE) to detect nitrite. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) image have indicated that copper oxide nanoparticles desposited on MWCPE are homogeneous. The CuOnano/MWCPE has been used to detect nitrite by square wave voltammetry and cyclic voltammetry techniques. The sensor has exhibited outstanding performance for the electrocatalysis of nitrite. Electrocatalytic oxidation of nitrite at the surface of CuOnano/MWCPE has been remarkably improved compared to the unmodified CPE and the MWCPE. Under optimum conditions, the oxidation current is linear with the concentration of nitrite ion in the range of 5 μM – 1000 μM. The detection limit has evaluated to be 1.25 μM (S/N = 3). The sensor has been successfully used to determine nitrite in water samples with excellent recoveries.
