Voltammetric sensing

Abstract:

Electrochemical analysis using mercury electrodes has been a prominent methodology since the beginning of voltammetry, however, due to its toxic nature their use is being slowly phased out in favour of environmentally friendlier alternatives. In this thesis, carbon electrodes feature heavily as a means to provide a cheaper and non-toxic approach to voltammmetric sensing. Pulse techniques have been used for the sensitive detection of commonly studied analytes, including antimony and iron.<...>
