In this review (with 100 refs), applicability of carbon paste electrodes (CPEs) in organic electrochemistry is of interest, when the authors cover the area in its entirety and over the whole period of the existence of carbon pastes in electrochemistry and electroanalysis. The individual periods are retrospectively summarised, when particular attention is paid to the Adams era representing the most extensive research ever carried out with carbon paste-based electrodes and organic compounds (namely: aromatic amines, hydroquinones and catechols, aminophenols and catecholamines). The following activities are discussed and critically evaluated with the aid of table surveys or selected illustrative examples, when all the major trends and contemporary achievements are highlighted, including the recent years, the present time, and future prospects.

Keywords: Carbon paste electrodes, electrochemistry, electrochemical investigation, organic compounds, electrode reactions and mechanisms, historical survey, review, carbon paste electrodes (CPEs), atypical carbon pastes, Anodic oxidations, Cathodic reductions, Non-electrolytic and other interactions, Polarisability, ohmic resistance, lipophilic
