Electrochemical Sensors: An Intense Mechanism in Scientific World

H L Kulkarni


Potentiometric, amperometric and conductometric electrochemical sensors have found a numeral of exciting uses in the areas of environmental, industrial, and clinical analyses. This review presents an overall outline of the three main kinds of electrochemical sensors, relating fundamental characteristics, improvements and their involvement to the area of analytical chemistry, concerning appropriate characteristics of the development of electrochemical sensors.
