Recent advances in square-wave voltammetry for analytical purposes as well as for studying electrode
mechanisms and kinetics are reviewed, mainly covering results published in the last decade. Analyzing
only some typical analytically oriented studies, one confirms the well-known fact that the technique
is attributed with superior analytical performance in the family of advance pulse voltammetric
techniques. Covering all analytical studies where square-wave voltammetry is the working technique is
hardly possible. For this reason, we decided to cover the relevant studies in square-wave voltammetry,
mainly published in the last five to seven years. The reviewed period is marked with remarkable contributions
in the theory of complex electrode mechanisms, revealing that square-wave voltammetry is one of
the most powerful voltammetric techniques for both mechanistic and kinetic characterizations of electrode
processes. Finally, a brief consideration is given to several methodologically oriented studies, referring
mainly to cyclic-square voltammetry as well as methods based on the analysis of electrode processes
by varying the amplitude of the potential modulation, which is expected to expand the scope and application
of the technique in coming years.
