This review with 119 references describes applications of amalgam electrodes in organic electrochemistry. Possible detection arrangements and useful techniques utilizing voltammetric and amperometric methods are briefly discussed. However, main attention is paid to the description of mechanisms of electrode reactions of investigated organic compounds determined at amalgam electrodes during last ten years. Selected derivatives of aromatic hydrocarbons, azo dyes, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, vitamins and biomolecules (e.g. amino acids, peptides, nucleobases and/or nucleic acids) are discussed. The understanding of the discussed methods gives a reader an overview of application possibilities offered by modern electroanalytical methods using amalgam electrodes.
