Study on the Molecular Recognition of Adrenaline by Supramolecular Complexation with Formamide

Tao Liu and Xiao-Wen Zheng
Abstract—Using cyclic voltammetry, we have investigated the electron transfer properties of supramolecular complexes of formamide (FA) with adrenaline (Ad) at graphite electrode and graphite electrode soaked in paraffine wax, respectively. The experimental results show that FA will affect the electron transfer properties of Ad. The formed supramolecular complexes by hydrogen bond (H-bond) interaction between FA and Ad will slow down the diffusion ability of adrenaline and make it hard to donate electron and be oxidized.

Index Terms—Cyclic voltammetry, formamide, adrenaline.
