- Cathodic stripping voltammetry
Cathodic stripping voltammetry is a voltammetric method for
quantitativedetermination of specific ionic species. It is similar to the traceanalysis method anodic stripping voltammetry, except that for the plating step, the potential is held at an oxidizing potential, and the oxidizedspecies are stripped from the electrode by sweeping the potential positively. This technique is used for ionic species that form insolublesalts and will deposit on or near the anodic, working electrode during deposition. The stripping step can be either linear, staircase, squarewave, or pulse.
