Dosage de traces de chrome hexavalent par voie photoélectrochimique

Abstract : Hexavalent chromium is toxic even at a very low concentration. His detection require many processes of separation and preconcentration before analyzing the sample. This study describes the elaboration of a new method of Cr(VI) determination with a specific, selective and accurate detection and without manipulating the sample. The electrochemical probe is mabe by TiO2 single crystal n doped by partial reduction of rutile in hydrogen. The obtained semiconductor of the n doped rutile are deduced from impedance spectra of In-Ga/TiO2x/Au Schottky diode. This method has allowed us to suggest the reduction kenitic of rutile in hydrogen. After the activation in an electrolytic solution, the semiconductor is used as a photoelectrochemical sensor. The Cr(VI) concentration is measured in three steps : accumulation of the chromium at the surface of rutile at open circuit, voltametric sweeping with UV illumination of the electrode and surface regeneration. The detection is quantitative between 0.005 and 2 ppm without any perturbation by other ions
