Abstract

A photomicrobial electrode, which uses the photosynthetic bacteria Chromatium sp. in conjunction with a hydrogen electrode, was developed for the determination of sulphide. The response time of the photomicrobial electrode was 5-10 min. A linear relationship was obtained between the current of the electrode and the sodium sulphide concentration below 3.5 mM. The minimum detectable concentration of sodium sulphide was 0.4 mM. Selectivity of the sensor is satisfactory. A good agreement was obtained between the photomicrobial electrode and the ethylene blue method (correlation coefficient: 0.90).
