Ruxolitinib (RUX), a compound of the pyrrolopyrimidines class with activity as a tyrosine kinase inhibitory drug, is used to treat myelofibrosis. This study is reported for the detailed electrochemical behavior of RUX. The effects of supporting electrolyte, pH, and scanning rate on the peak potentials and currents of RUX were investigated by BDDE and GCE using different voltammetric techniques. Under optimum experimental conditions, calibration curves for RUX were obtained as 4 mu M-80 mu M and 1 mu M-80 mu M with a limit of detection (LOD) of 0.517 mu M and 0.192 mu M by the GCE and BDDE, respectively using DPV.
