Abstract: Electrochemical detection of Hg(II) using a electropolymerized ion imprinting poly(2-mercaptobenzothiazole) films at the surface of gold nanoparticles/single-walled carbon nanotube nanohybrids modified glassy carbon electrode (PMBT/AuNPs/SWCNTs/GCE) is described for the first time. The Hg(II)-imprinted PMBT/AuNPs/SWCNTs/GCE sensor exhibits larger binding to functionalized capacity, larger affinity, faster binding kinetics and higher selectivity to template Hg(II). The differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry (DPASV) response of the Hg(II)-imprinted PMBT/AuNPs/SWCNTs/GCE sensor to Hg(II) is ca. 3.7- and 10.5-fold higher than that at the non-imprinted PMBT/AuNPs/SWCNTs/GCE and the imprinted PMBT/AuNPs/GCE, respectively, and the detection limit for Hg(II) is 0.08 nM (S/N = 3, which is well below the guideline value given by the World Health Organization) and a sensitivity of 0.749 μA nM-1 was obtained. Excellent wide linear range (0.4 - 96.0 nM) and good repeatability (relative standard deviation of 2.6%) were obtained for Hg(II). The interference experiments show that Ag(I), Pb(II), Cd(II), Zn(II) and Cu(II) had little or no influence on the Hg(II) signal. These values, particularly the high sensitivity and excellent selectivity in contrast to the values reported previously in the area of electrochemical Hg(II) detection, demonstrate the analytical performance of the Hg(II)-imprinted PMBT/AuNPs/SWCNTs/GCE toward Hg(II) is superior to the existing electrodes and could be used for efficient determination of Hg(II) in natural water samples
