In the present paper, the use of a carbon paste electrode modified by quinizarine (QZ) and TiO(2) nanoparticles prepared by a simple and rapid method was described. The heterogeneous electron-transfer properties of quinizarine coupled to TiO(2) nanoparticles at a carbon paste electrode was investigated using cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry in aqueous buffer solutions. The modified electrode showed excellent character for the electrocatalytic oxidization of hydrazine (HZ). Differential pulse voltammetric peak currents of HZ increased linearly with their concentrations at the range of 0.5 µM to 1900.0 µM and the detection limit (2σ) was determined to be 77 nM. Finally, this method was used for the determination of HZ in water samples, using a standard addition method.
