A novel electrochemical sensor was prepared using N-doped carbon mesoporous materials supported with nickel nanoparticles (Ni-NCs) for environmental p-nitrophenol (p-NP) detection in a specific geographical area. These as-prepared Ni-NCs were dispersed in polyethyleneimine (PEI) solution and modified onto a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) for electrocatalytic reduction of p-NP. The Ni-NCs-PEI/GCE showed a high Faraday current at -0.302 V during p-NP reduction, because of the synergistic effect between Ni-NCs and PEI. Under ideal conditions, the Ni-NCs-PEI/GCE was used in the voltametric determination of p-NP, with high sensitivity. The linear ranges for p-NP are 0.06-10 μM and 10-100 μM with low detection limit (4.0 nM) and high sensitivity (1.465 μA μM-1 cm-2). In the presence of other phenolic compounds, this sensor showed good selectivity for p-NP detection. The Ni-NCs-PEI/GCE was also used to determine p-NP in environmental water samples of a specific geographical area, with recoveries ranging from 95.9% to 109.4%, and an RSD of less than 3.6%. Therefore, this novel Ni-NCs-PEI/GCE provides a good example for the design of other carbon-based nanocomposite materials, for electrochemical detection of trace p-NP in a specific geographical area.
