Electrochemical bromination of organosulfur containing species for the determination of the strength of garlic (A. sativum).
The extraction by ethyl acetate and subsequent electrochemical detection of organosulfur containing molecules from garlic is demonstrated. The electrochemical results first evidence the high sensitivity of the process towards the model compound propyl disulfide. Through the in situ formation of bromine at a platinum electrode the propyl disulfide can be readily detected at concentrations as low as 12.5μM. Second, the work focuses on the detection of organosulfur from fresh garlic samples. Ext...Expand abstract
