Pure and nickel-modified alumina powders with different porosity were synthesized and applied on the glassy carbon electrode by means of Nafion polymer. The data obtained from the nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherm confirmed that the pore structures in these materials are complex and tend to be made up of interconnected networks of pores of different size and shape. The addition of Ni2+ ions caused the changes in the textural properties of the samples. The influence of porosity on the electrochemical behavior of modified electrodes in quasi-reversible process was tested by cyclic voltammetry. Numerical correlations between electrochemical responses of GCE modified with alumina samples and textural properties have been established.
