Electrochemical techniques are invaluable as a means of characterising chemical systems and analysing chemical phenomena through the medium of intensity-potential curves at an electrode. They make it possible to obtain thermodynamic and kinetic data for the classification of oxidant/reductant pairs and for the prediction of chemical reactions, to determine the stability of chemically or electrochemically generated species, and to reveal the reaction mechanisms and the influence of the medium or of different substances on the chemical species in solution. Electroanalytical techniques are highly sensitive (having a detection limit of between 1.0 E-6 and 1.0 E-10 M), precise and relatively inexpensive.
