Laboratory Methods in Dynamic Electroanalysis is a useful guide to introduce analytical chemists to the world of electroanalysis using simple, low-cost methods. As electroanalytical devices have moved from conventional electrochemical cells (10-20 mL) to current cells (1-5 mL) with different materials such as paper, interesting strategies have emerged, including nanostructuration of electrodes, microfluidic cells and biosensing. This book provides detailed, up-to-date procedures for electroanalysis and covers the main trends in electrochemical cells and electrodes, including microfluidic electrodes, paper-based electrochemical devices, microchip electrophoresis with integrated electrochemical detection, nanostructuration of electrodes and nanoparticles as labels in bioassays, and electrochemical biosensing.

Techniques and strategies are presented in an easy-to-understand, didactic, practice-based way, and a bibliography provides readers with additional sources of information.

Key Features

  • Provides easy-to-implement experiments using low-cost, simple equipment
  • Includes laboratory methodologies that utilize the latest trends in analytical chemistry in general and electroanalysis in particular
  • Goes beyond the fundamentals covered in other books, focusing instead on practical applications of electroanalysis


Researchers interested in trends in electrochemistry or in low-cost miniaturised analytical devices, either in chemistry or in other fields such as biotechnology; upper undergrad/grad/PhD students, early stage researchers, and instructors for courses teaching electroanalysis or general analytical chemistry
