A single run approach for rapid detection of nitrification inhibitor, dicyandiamide (DCD) using electrogenerated chlorine assisted polymerization through azo bond, under acidic conditions and at a preanodized screen printed carbon electrode (SPCE*) is presented. The role of chloride containing support electrolyte in acidic medium along with oxygen functionalities/edge sites are found to be crucial for the successful oxidative polymerization and subsequent adsorption of oxidized products on the electrode surface. The SEM, cyclic voltammetry and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy studies were used to characterize the polymer film formation. The system exhibited a linear range between 20 and 170 μM with a detection limit of 3 μM (S/N = 3). The method was successfully tested for the detection of DCD in dairy and water samples. Simultaneous detection of DCD in the presence of melamine has also been demonstrated.
