Abstract:


This review describes our recent results regarding adsorptive stripping voltammetric determination of submicromolar and nanomolar concentrations of various environmentally important chemical carcinogens using both traditional (hanging mercury drop electrode, carbon paste electrode) and non-traditional types of electrodes (solid amalgam electrodes, glassy carbon paste electrodes, carbon ink film electrodes, solid composite electrodes). The review concentrates on our own results in the context of the general development in the filed.
