This study demonstrates the utility of carbon paste electrode modified with C18 for the electrochemical determination of Cu(II) in aqueous medium by using Differential Pulse Anodic Stripping Voltammetry (DPASV). The electrode exhibits a linear response to Cu(II) over a wide concentration range. The fabrication process of the quoted modified electrode is very simple and fast, as well as its cleaning procedure. It has a high degree of repeatability of the measurements. The detection limit of this electrode determined in the range of 4 -9·10-4 mg/l is 4·10-5 mg/l.
