Dienogest is a synthetic oral progestogen with unique pharmacological properties that is used orally in the treatment of endometrosis. The first time, the detailed electrochemical mechanism of dienogest is investigated in different aqueous mediums. Different progestins were used to understand completely oxidation mechanism. The electrochemical oxidation of dienogest was investigated systematically by cyclic voltammetry, differential pulse voltammetry, and square wave voltammetry. A simple adsorptive stripping square wave voltammetry method has been developed for the fully validated direct determination of dienogest in Visanne Tablets for the first time. Nano based sensor was fabricated with reduced graphene oxide, gold and carboxylic acid functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotube materials, and were used on glassy carbon electrode that performed sensitive and validated analysis of dienogest by adsorptive stripping square wave voltammetry. Validation parameters were investigated in detail. The results yielded good precision, accuracy and reproducibility. Calibration range was found as 2.00×10?7 M to 6.00×10?6 M, with LOD and LOQ values as 1.88×10?8 M and 6.27×10?8 M, respectively. In the future, the developed sensor can be applied in different media such as environment, soil and water for the detection of some progestins or hormones by researchers. © 2018 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
