Green Electroanalysis

Electroanalytical methods can have adverse environmental side effects. In this chapter the main features that will make it possible to avoid their deleterious aspects are considered. Alternative solvents and new electrode materials available are discussed and special attention has been paid to the development and applications of electrochemical sensors and biosensors which can provide analytical information, both in flow and using miniaturized devices. All of these advances confirm that modern electroanalytical chemistry can offer exciting green solutions to the real problems of monitoring important and special parameters in all types of materials, from environmental to clinical samples.
