Boron-doped diamond (BDD) is one of a number of solid electrode materials that have been developed as alternatives to mercury electrodes for electroanalysis. Electrodes made from boron-doped diamond possess many attractive properties including a wide potential window, low background currents, high resistance to electrode fouling, ease of chemical modification, long term stability and the hard and flat nature of the electrode surface. This review covers work on a wide range of analytical applications and enhancement techniques for stripping voltammetry at boron-doped diamond electrodes including the use of power ultrasound, microwave radiation, lasers and microelectrode arrays.
