Under an optimal condition, applied potential = –0.2 V vs Ag/AgCl, hydrodynamic flow rate = 0.75 mL min–1 and pH 7 phosphate buffer as a carrier solution, the FIA-ECD showed H2O2 calibration plot in an range 50–2500 µM with detection limit and current sensitivity values 9.7 µM and 0.59 nA µM–1 (0.8345 A M–1 cm–2) respectively. There was no interference from cysteine, ascorbic acid, uric acid, nitrite, and nitrate. A cosmetic cream, clinical H2O2 and milk were further tested as real samples with ~100% recovery values.
