In this Article, a new electrochemical sensor based on molecular imprinting polymer (MIP) and platinum nanoparticles (Pt NPs)/carbon nitride nanotubes (C3N4 NTs) nanocomposite was developed for atrazine (ATR) analysis. First, the structures of prepared nanocomposites and surfaces were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). After the characterization studies, ATR-imprinted glassy carbon electrode (GCE) based on Pt NPs/C3N4 NTs nanocomposite was developed by 100 mM phenol containing 25 nM ATR: The linearity range and the detection limit of the molecular imprinted sensor were calculated as 1.0 X 10(-12)-1.0 X 10(-10) and 1.5 X 10(-13) M, respectively. In addition, the voltammetric sensor was applied to wastewater samples with high recovery.
