An electrogenerated Polyarginine modified carbon paste electrode (PAMCPE) was fabricated through a simple electropolymerization procedure. The devised electrode was characterized by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM). This electrode was utilized for electrocatalytic estimation of Riboflavin (RF) and its instantaneous resolution with ascorbic acid (AA) and folic acid (FA) in phosphate buffer solution (PBS) of pH 6.0 by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). It was observed to be a very responsive electrode for the electrochemical detection and quantification of RF. It was revealed that PAMCPE generates higher current response towards RF contrast to the bare carbon paste electrode (BCPE). Under optimized condition, the RF oxidation current values were linearly reliant on the RF concentration increment with a limit of detection (LOD) of 9.310-8 M using DPV. The stable PAMCPE was effectively applied for estimation of RF in B-complex pill and complex human blood serum samples.
