ELECTROANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE QUANTIFICATION OF TECHNOLOGY-CRITICAL ELEMENTS IN ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES
Cobelo-Garcia, A. and M. Filella.
Current Opinion in Electrochemistry 3:78-90(2017)

There is an increasing demand for analytical techniques that are able to measure technology-critical elements (rare earths), a set of elements increasingly used in technological applications (e.g., Pt-group elements, Nb, Ta, Te, In, Ga, Ge, Tl). Recent advances in voltammetric methods for determining these elements in environmental media are reviewed, mainly covering results published since 2004. Methods ready to be applied, along with promising methods in need of further development, are identified and critically evaluated. The effect of these elements on human health and the environment has yet to be studied. https://archive-ouverte.unige.ch/unige:96128/ATTACHMENT01
