Strategies to modify screen-printed electrodes (SPE) for lead determination are reported. Dithizone was mixed with graphite ink to obtain a modified screen-printed strip to detect ppb levels of lead(II) (detection limit 12 mu g/l) using square wave anodic stripping voltammetry (SWASV). In addition, screen-printed electrodes were also modified by casting a few mu l of a Nafion(R) solution onto the working electrode surface. In this case, ppb levels of lead were detected (detection limit 15 mu g/l), using potentiometric stripping analysis (PSA). The addition of an ionophore to Nafion(R) polymer was also investigated, but this did not yield a significant improvement.
