Recent trends and advances in the electrochemistry with both unmodified and modified carbon paste electrodes are reviewed (247 refs.). Present day knowledge of their basic physico-chemical properties and characteristics is surveyed, including some specifics important in electrochemical measurements. Special attention is paid to the possibilities of carbon paste-based electrodes in electrochemical investigations and in modern electroanalysis of inorganic ions or molecules, organic substances, biologically important compounds, and pharmaceuticals.
