Gold nanoparticle modified indium tin oxide (ITO) film coated glass electrodes were prepared for the first time through direct electrochemical deposition from 0.5 M H2SO4 containing 0.1 mM HAuCl4. The resulting electrode surfaces were characterized with AFM. Cyclic voltammetry and linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) of arsenic(III) on the modified electrodes were performed. After optimization, a LOD of 5 ± 0.2 ppb was obtained with 60 s deposition at -0.6 V (vs. SCE) in 1 M HNO3 using LSV.
