HCQ "is a halogenated aminoquinoline that presents wide biological activity, often being used as an antimalarial drug," scientists in Brazil explained.
In a study conducted by M.L.P.M. Arguelho and colleagues at Federal University of Sergipe, "the electrochemical reduction of HCQ was investigated by cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry using glassy carbon electrodes."
"By cyclic voltammetry, in acid medium, only the cathodic peak was observed," they noted. "The electrochemical behavior of this peak is dependent on pH and the electrodic process...
