Recent Advances in Electroanalytical Techniques: Characterization, Classification, and Terminology

The IUPAC technical report Classification and Nomenclature of Electroanalytical Techniques (Rules Approved 1975), Pure Appl. Chem., 45 (2-C) 83, 1976, has not been updated for over 25 years. The material based on this document, which is embodied in chapter 8 of the IUPAC "Orange Book," is therefore also out of date. During recent decades, several electroanalytical techniques lost their importance (e.g., differential voltammetry or Kalousek polarography), while new techniques have been developed and have found widespread use (e.g., square wave voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, or hyphenated techniques, such as those accomplished with the use of the electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance). There is thus a clear need for a modern document concerning the characterization, classification, and recommendation of the relevant terminology for the new and currently used electroanalytical techniques.

The objective of this project is to revise and update the outdated IUPAC report and publish it in both print and electronic form. This will facilitate the updating of the Orange Book and relevant terms in the Gold Book. It will provide, in a concise form, a contemporary source of characterization, classification, and terminology of electroanalytical techniques for a broad audience of analytical, physical, inorganic, organic, environmental, and clinical chemists. These techniques are widely used in academic research and teaching laboratories as well as clinical, environmental, and industrial analytical laboratories.
