Scope and limitations of modern polarographic and voltammetric techniques on mercury electrodes are discussed and many practical examples of their applications in practical analysis are given to demonstrate that even in the third millennium polarography and voltammetry at mercury electrodes can be very useful analytical tools, which in certain cases can successfully compete with modern spectroscopic and separation techniques.
