History of the development of the polarographic method from the birth of Professor Jaroslav Heyrovsky in 1890 until the Nobel Prize award in 1959 is described. Background of the Nobel Laureate's family and education is given. Factors contributing to the discovery and development of the method are discussed. 
Eighty Years of Polarography – History and Future
Since 1922, when Professor Jaroslav Heyrovský carried out his pioneering experiment with a dropping mercury electrode, polarography showed remarkable ability to adjust to ever increasing demands on
The anfractuous pathways which led to the development of electrochemical stripping techniques
Stripping voltammetric techniques provide the most sensitive electroanalytical determinations. Although the idea to combine an electrochemical (or non-electrochemical) preconcentration step with an

Plasma Electrochemistry: Development of a Reference Electrode Material for High Temperature Plasma
TLDR
The electrode is constructed by careful assessment of different metal/metal oxide materials and operational stability in flame electrolyte medium to enable reliable dynamic electrochemistry investigations into redox reactions at the solid/gas interface, free of any solvent defined potential window restrictions.
Recent Advances in Electroanalysis of Organic Compounds at Carbon Paste Electrodes
In this review (with 223 refs), electroanalysis of organic compounds with carbon paste-based electrodes, sensors, and detectors is discussed. The individual methods, covering the period of 2004–2008,
Carbon paste electrodes in the new millennium
In this review (with 500 refs), both electrochemistry and electroanalysis with carbon paste-based electrodes, sensors, and detectors are of interest, when attention is focused on the research

This Waters Symposium celebrates the development of analytical instrumentation in the general area of electrochemistry and, more precisely, in the area of voltammetric instrumentation (broadly
50th Anniversary of the Nobel Prize for Polarography
On December 10, 1959, at 4.30 p.m. in Stockholm, Sweden, Professor Jaroslav Heyrovský received the Nobel Prize for the polarographic method of analysis from the hands of King Gustav Adolph VI (see
Anodic Stripping Voltammetry Combined with Sequential Injection Analysis for Measurements of Trace Metal Ions with Bismuth- and Antimony Film Electrodes under Comparable Conditions
Anodic stripping voltammetry combined with sequential injection analysis (ASV-SIA) was selected to examine the use of bismuth- and antimony-film plated glassy carbon electrodes under comparable
