Abstract

The last 25 years have witnessed a revolution in voltammetric analyses, including the routine use of solid electrodes and solid state sensors, amperometric detection for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and capillary electrophoresis (CE), newly developed electrochemical waveforms, software simulation for mechanistic interpretation, and the implementation of computer-controlled workstations. In the fall of 1994 we purchased two voltammetric workstations, a low-current amplifier for microelectrode use, and two amperometric detectors. Here we describe several ways in which we have initially utilized this equipment in our undergraduate curriculum and research programs.
