However, no studies of the electrooxidation of these DNA nitrogenated bases on graphite electrode, modified with polymeric films derived from aminophenols, were found in the open literature.
The aim of this work was to investigate the electropolymerization of aminophenols onto graphite electrodes in more acidic media, as well as the electrochemical and morphological characterization of the modified electrodes produced and the immobilization of nitrogenated bases on these electrodes.
One, referred to as the "primary," is exemplified by the phenylenediamines, and the other, often an aminophenol, is known as the "coupler.
