https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.E01944
A method in which either current or potential is measured during an electrochemical reaction. The gas or liquid containing the trace impurity to be analysed is sent through an electrochemical cell containing a liquid or solid electrolyte and in which an electrochemical reaction specific to the impurity takes place.
