The electrochemical oxidation of nevirapine, an anti-HIV drug, at a gold electrode was studied by voltammetric techniques. Nevirapine showed a signal that interfered with a working electrode wave. This interference was solved by the use of cucurbit(7)uril allowing nevirapine to be determined in tablets (80.4 % recovery, presence of stavudine and lamivudine) and urine (98.4 %).
