[Co(bdmpzm)2(NCS)2] (bdmpzm=bis(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)methane) was dispersed in graphene oxide (GOx). Composite GOx-[Co(bdmpzm)2(NCS)2] was deposited on a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) and reduced at -1.0 by 60 s. The modified electrode rGOx-[Co(bdmpzm)2(NCS)2]/GCE allowed the oxidation for dopamine (DA) at 0.41 V Our results showed reversible and sensitive process, (ΔV 0.09 V) compared with the electrode without modified in buffer phosphate solution pH 3.0. The detection limit (3σ/b) for dopamine was 0.11 μmol L-1 and the RSD was 3.0%. The presence of uric acid and ascorbic acid did not interfere with the signal for dopamine.
