A glassy carbon electrode, modified with gold nanoparticles/over-oxidized poly-eriochrome black T film, was fabricated for sensitive determination of As(III) by stripping voltammetry in an acidic medium. The electrode surface properties were characterized by cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, scanning electron microscope (SEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The electrode demonstrated a good response towards As(III), with a detection of 0.077 μM and good linearity in the range of 0.1 to 10 μM (R2 = 0.9977). For the determination of As(III), the fabricated electrode was placed in different mineral water samples, acidified with 0.75 M HCl solution, spiked with various concentrations of As(III). Spiked recoveries for mineral water samples were obtained in the range of 100.3%-105.0%. The relative standard deviations were lower than 4.0%.
