Highly sensitive nanosensors such as graphene oxide/ platinum-iridium nanohybrid, carboxylic acid functionalized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (GO/Pt-Ir/MWCNT-COOH) and amine functionalized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (GO/Pt-Ir/MWCNT-NH2) modified glassy carbon electrode were developed for the determination of 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor agonist, Eletriptan. Graphene oxide/platinum-iridium nanohybrid was synthesized using sonication method and then characterized by spectroscopic and microscopic methods such as Raman, TEM, HRTEM, XPS, and XRD. The prepared nanohybrids modified on glassy carbon electrodes were well characterized and applied for electrochemical determination of Eletriptan. The significant enhancement of the oxidation peak current of Eletriptan was observed in GO/Pt-Ir/MWCNT-COOH as a best nanosensor in all prepared ones. The pH, scan rate and the amount of GO/Pt-Ir/MWCNT-COOH were also optimized for Eletriptan analysis. After obtaining of the optimum conditions, the identification of Eletriptan was performed between the linear range of 1 × 10-7 M and 4 × 10-6 M with a detection limit of 6.1 × 10-9 M. The developed method was successfully applied for the determination of the drug in tablets with acceptable recoveries. Moreover, it can be elicited that, in electrochemical studies, electroactive interferences from the tablet excipients did not interfere with the results.
