© 2019 Elsevier Ltd Development of novel biocompatible sensor material suitable for modest, cost-effective, and rapid practical application is a demanding research interest in the field of electroanalytical chemistry. In this context, for the first time, we utilized biocompatible chitosan-pectin biopolyelectrolyte (CS-PC BPE) complex for the simultaneous electroreduction of an important antibiotic drug (metronidazole-MNZ) and herbicide (metribuzin-MTZ). This sensor reveals an attractive welfares such as simplicity, biocompatibility, and low production cost. Under optimized experimental conditions, the electroanalytical investigation confirmed that CS-PC BPE modified glassy carbon electrode (CS-PC BPE/GCE) was found to sense MNZ and MTZ in the nanomolar range. Moreover, as-prepared CS-PC BPE/GCE exhibited prominent selectivity, stability, and reproducibility. Additionally, the possible MNZ and MTZ sensing mechanism of CS-PC BPE/GCE have been discussed in detail. Lastly, real sample analysis was also carried out and revealed from several investigations that the CS-PC BPE/GCE is a good electrochemical sensor system for the detection of targeted analytes.
