Abstract: In this work, a norfloxacin selective modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) based on a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) as electrochemical sensor was developed. A suspension of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) was deposited on the electrode surface. Subsequently, a molecularly imprinted film was prepared by electropolymerization, via cyclic voltammetry of pyrrole (PPy) in the presence of norfloxacin (NFX) as the template molecule. A control electrode (NIP) was also prepared. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and cyclic voltammetry in a ferrocyanide solution were performed for morphological and electrochemical characterisation, respectively. Several experimental parameters were studied and optimised. For quantification purposes the MIP/MWCNT/GCE was immersed in NFX solutions for 10 min, and the detection was performed in voltammetric cell by square wave voltammetry. The proposed sensor presented a linear behaviour, between peak current intensity and logarithmic concentration of NFX between 1 x 10-7 and 8 x 10-6 M. The obtained results presented good precision, with a repeatability of 4.3% and reproducibility of 9% and the detection limit was 4.6 x 10-8 M (S/N = 3). The developed sensor displayed good selectivity and operational lifetime, is simple to fabricate and easy to operate and was successfully applied to the analysis of NFX in urine samples
