Pyrolyzed photoresist film (PPF) electrodes for application in electroanalysis were prepared on alumina substrates. These electrodes were characterized for their electrical, microstructural (by Raman spectroscopy) and electrochemical properties. As a support, the PPF electrodes were tested for simultaneous determination of Pb(II), Cd(II) and Zn(II) in an aqueous solution on in-situ formed bismuth film by square wave voltammetry (SWV). The dependence of the stripping responses on the concentration of target metals was linear in the range from 1·10-8 to 9·10-8 mol/L. The effect of activation of the PPF surface by argon plasma on analytical performance of bismuth film electrode (BiFE) on PPF support was also investigated.
