Applied Sciences, Vol. 11, Pages 9470: Induced Effect of Gold Nanoparticles (AuNPs) and Halide Ions on Pyridoxine Molecule Stability
Applied Sciences doi: 10.3390/app11209470
The electrochemical behavior of pyridoxine was studied in 0.1 mol × L−1 NaX (X = F, Cl, Br) support electrolyte on a gold electrode using cyclic voltammetry and UV–Vis spectrophotometry. The influence of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) on the electrochemical behavior of pyridoxine was studied. The experimental results obtained by both cyclic voltammetry and UV–Vis spectrophotometry indicate strong interactions in the B6 and NaBr/NaCl_AuNP systems, while in the NaF_B6_AuNP ternary system the results indicate a mechanism of direct electrochemical degradation of vitamin B6. The experimental results obtained for the electrochemical degradation of pyridoxine, in the presence of chloride and bromide ions, indicate strong interactions in the NaCl_B6_AuNP and NaBr_B6_AuNP systems associated with the spectrophotometric identification of the electrogenerated intermediates, while in the presence of fluoride ions no such products are identified. The development of the mechanism of electrochemical degradation of the pyridoxine molecule predicts both the formation of the corresponding electrogenerated intermediates and the steps of electro-incineration in a direct mechanism.
