A carbon electrode modified with the ionic liquid octylpyridinium hexafluorophosphate and copper hydroxide nanoparticles was employed in an electrochemical assay for simultaneous determination of captopril (CPT) and hydrochlorothiazide (HCT). The electrode showed two well-defined oxidation peaks for CPT (at 0.22 V) and HCT (at 0.73 V, both vs. Ag/AgCl) at pH 8.0 using square wave voltammetry. Calibration plots are linear in the concentration ranges of 0.7-70 µM (CPT) and 3-600 μM (HCT), with detection limits of 12 and 60 nM, respectively. The electrode was repeatedly applied to simultaneous determination of CPT and HCT in pharmaceutical formulation without showing any fouling. Graphical abstract Application of carbon ionic liquid electrode (CILE) modified with Cu(OH) nanoparticles (Cu(OH)NP/CILE) for the simultaneous determination of captopril (CPT) and hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) in pharmaceutical formulation is presented.
