Diazinon is commonly used for pest control in the agricultural fields because of its relatively low cost and high efficiency. Due to the increasing application of pesticides, reliable and accurate analytical methods are necessary for their monitoring. This work was aimed to design the high selective electrochemical sensor for determining of diazinon in biological and environmental samples. The composition of sensor was modified with multi-walls carbon nanotubes and a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP). A diazinon MIP was synthesized and applied in the carbon paste electrode (CP). The prepared sensor was used to determine the concentration of analyte. Parameters affecting the sensor response, such as sample pH, electrolyte concentration and its pH, and the instrumental parameters of square wave voltammetry, were optimized in different levels to select the optimum conditions for analysis of diazinon. The MIP-CP electrode showed very high specificity for determining the analyte. The obtained linear range was 1×10-6 to 5×10-10 mol L-1. The detection limit was 2.7×10-10 molL-1. This sensor was successfully used to determine the diazinon in environmental and biological real samples without special sample pretreatment before analysis.
