Summary and Outlook

"This book will stimulate scientists working in applied electrochemistry, especially in biosensing . . . The book can be recommended to scientists. The reader will see in which way classical principles of electrochemistry can be combined with modern molecular recognition principles." (Anal Bioanal Chem, 2010)

"Treat yourself to a copy! The editors and authors can be proud of an enormous task, very well done in this masterfully conceptualized book." (Current Engineering Practice, 2010)

“Overall, this book is a very useful and timely contribution that expertly documents the progress in selected areas of research on chemically modified electrodes. I have enjoyed reading it and strongly recommend it for researchers and graduate students who work or contemplate working in this area. In addition, the book can be used as an excellent resource for teaching advanced graduate elective courses, e.g., in electroanalysis and electrocatalysis.”(JACS Reviews, 2010)
