Using glyphosate as the additive, copper thin films were prepared by the electrochemical deposition method from a CuSO4 aqueous solution under a specific voltage. The copper thin films were grown on the surface of the indium tin oxide (ITO) film, which was used as the working electrode in a classical three-electrode cell. Glyphosate combined with the copper ion to form a complex, and hindered further reduction and crystallization of the copper ions. The results indicated that the peak intensities of the X-ray diffraction peaks decreased with the increase in the glyphosate concentrations, which can be used as a basis for quantitative detection. The method is simple and highly sensitive.
