New Arduino-Based Chemiluminescence Sensing Device for Measuring Sodium Hypochlorite




Abstract Views: 105

In this work, new device is designed for measuring light intensity of Chemiluminescence reaction between Luminol with Sodium Hypochlorite. The project includes two parts, first is description build-up of novel designed home –made and semi-automated device for determination Chemiluminescence and Bioluminescence light by direct reaction analysis of Luminol with oxidant and using Mobile –phone as recorder that it is employed in chemistry with Arduino. The second is use this device to measuring light intensity of reaction Luminol with Sodium Hypochlorite as function for concentration by this method. The method is easy, simple and rapid with high sensitivity for the determination Sodium Hypochlorite. The light of chemiluminescence reaction of Luminol (5-amino-2,3-dihydro-1,4_phthalazinedione) with oxidation (Sodium Hypochlorite) sense by photocell and the signal send to Mobile through Blynk program that is installed in Mobile –phone and it is display the analysis results and statically data. The application of the device carried out into chemical-system consist of reaction to determined Sodium Hypochlorite and compare the results of the device with real value to give high accuracy. Sodium Hypochlorite was determined in standard solution and calibration curve built to give typical linear calibration results and the linear graph has a regression coefficient and Correlation coefficient of r2 =0.9919, r=0.9959 for 6 point . The detection limit (3σ×noise) was of 0.5 ppm and R.S.D% for seven replicate analysis of hypochlorite standards was 0.14 %. The device used to determination sodium hypochlorite in commercial samples to give good accuracy and recovery.
