This work presents the detection and quantification of As(III) at an exfoliated graphite electrode (EG) modified with a composite of cobalt nanoparticles and reduced graphene oxide. The materials were characterised by Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy & energy dispersive spectroscopy. Modification of the surface of EG with the composite material led to significant improvement in its electro-active surface area and thus electrocatalytic activity. The sensor was utilised for the
