Abstract Electrochemical behavior of thyroxine at a polyvinylpyrrolidone modified carbon paste electrode in the presence of cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide was described. Thyroxine underwent totally irreversible oxidation at this system and a well-defined peak at 0.42 V was obtained. The influence of various surfactants on the oxidation of thyroxine was examined by cyclic voltammetry. Chronocoulometry was also used to investigate the electrode process. In the range 2 x 10(-7) to 9 x 10(-6)mol/l, the thyroxine concentration was linear with the oxidation peak current and a low detection limit of 8 x 10(-8) mol/l was obtained for 5 min accumulation.
