Abstract In this paper, the voltammetric properties of diethylstilbestrol (DES) at the carbon paste electrode were described. The oxidation peak currents of DES increase significantly in the presence of surfactant cetylpyridine bromide (CPB), compared with that in the absence of CPB. Based on this fact, a voltammetric technique for determining DES is proposed. The accumulation potential has no effects on the peak current of the DES. An open-circuit accumulation is carried out. The experimental parameters, such as pH value of buffer, scan rate, and accumulation time were optimized. The interferences of some metal ions and organic compounds have also been studied, and some metal ions almost do not interfere with the determination of DES. Using this voltammetric method, DES in the injection sample was measured. The results show that this voltammetric method is reliable for the practice determination of DES.
