The aim of this volume is to review the state-of-the-art in analytical voltammetry with regard to theory and instrumentation, and show how these relate to the analysis of inorganic, organometallic, organic and biological molecules. Modern voltammetric techniques have practical applications in biological, pharmaceutical and environmental chemistry. The growing importance of voltammetry in the development of modified electrodes and biological electrodes and chemical and biological sensors is also highlighted.
