The adsorptive properties and electrochemical behavior of ketoconazole, an oral anti-fungal agent, are demonstrated at a glassy carbon electrode. The adsorption of the compound obeys the Frumkin isotherm with an interaction factor (alpha) of 0.985 and adsorptive coefficient (beta) of 1.98 x 10(6) L mol(-1). The Gibbs energy of adsorption (deltaG) is -3.59 x 10(4) J mol(-1) at 25 degrees C. A very sensitive electroanalytical method has been developed for determination of the drug with a detection limit of 4.0 x 10(-11) mol L(-1). Relationships between stripping current and concentration of ketoconazole were linear in the range 10(-6)-10(-10) mol L(-1) with different preconcentration periods. The method has been used to measure the ketoconazole content of tablets.
