This work report a sensitive and selective anodic stripping method for the simultaneous determination of Pb(II) and Cd(II) using (3,10,18,25-tetraoxapentacyclo [ 12,16 .0 4,9 .0 19,24 ] dotriaconta1(31),4(9),5,7,12(32),13,15,19,21,23,27,29-dodecaene-2,11,17,26-tetrone) macrocyclic ester (L). Anodic peak currents were increased from 1.16 to 31.48 μA for Pb(II) and 0.22 to 6.68 μA for Cd(II) when the in-situ mercury film electrode was modified with nafion and (L). Moreover, potentials separation values for Cd-Pb shift from 150 to 190 mV. Optimal parameters such as: pH; L concentration (C L ), mercury concentration (C Hg ), accumulation potential (E ACC ) and accumulation time (t ACC ) were pH 4.0 for Pb(II) and 5.0 for Cd(II) using phosphate buffer solution (PBS), CL 12.0 mmol L -1 , C Hg 28.0 mg L -1 , E ACC -1 .0 V and tACC 60. Detection limits (DoL) were 0.085 and 0.80 μg L -1 for Pb(II) and Cd(II) respectively. The relative standard deviation (RSD) for seven measurements of Pb(II) and Cd(II) 9.0 μg L -1 were of 2.5 and 2.0% respectively. The method was validated by ICP multi-element standard solution IX (Merck) containing As, Be, Cd, Cr(VI), Hg, Ni, Pb, Se and Tl 100 mg L -1 . Finally, useful of the modified electrode was developed in the analysis of Pb(II) and Cd(II) using tap water samples.
