Because of their simple preparation and low expense, carbon pastes and carbon paste electrodes are widely used in a myriad of instrumental measurements. With an emphasis on practical applications, Electroanalysis with Carbon Paste Electrodes provides a comprehensive overview of carbon paste electrodes. The text offers a comprehensive and unprecedentedly wide insight into the realm of the carbon paste material, culminating with a systematic presentation of all the methods and procedures applicable to the determination of a myriad of inorganic and organic substances when employing the individual types and variants of carbon paste-based electrodes, sensors, and detectors.
With a lengthy list of up-to-date references, this handy reference source includes many typical as well as specific experimental data, serving as a practical guide for daily laboratory work. More specifically, this monograph, the first of its kind, contains:
All types of carbon pastes in contemporary classification ,with particular emphasis on chemically and biologically modified configurations, or newly propagated mixtures made of alternate componentsDetails on the preparation of carbon pastes, with a number of practical hints and recommendations, including some hitherto unreported approachesPractical guidance for experimental laboratory work on the preparation and characterization of carbon pastes, including guides on the testing of newly made mixturesIndividual methods and procedures for the determination of hundreds of various substances in a complete survey of applicationsNearly 3300 original references presented as full-text citations

Congratulations to the authors of this monograph for documenting the developments and applications of CPE and allowing this introduction about the inventor, the late Professor Ralph N. Adams. I end with what he told his students - "If you love what you are doing, the rewards will take care of themselves..."
