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. 
Mercury Electrodes–Possibilities and Limitations in Environmental Electroanalysis
Recent developments in the use of polarography and voltammetry at mercury electrodes in environmental analysis are reviewed and their combination with preliminary separation and pre-concentration

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
Electrochemical Renewal of Stationary Mercury Drop or Meniscus Electrodes
We show that a liquid mercury drop electrode surface can be electrochemically renewed without mechanical detachment of the drop. Voltammetric experiments with a mechanically renewed stationary
Multielement analysis in stripping voltammetry
An original software that allows different versions of stripping voltammetry to be used in domestic Khan-2 and VA-03 computer-controlled analyzers is tested. An increase in the number of metal ions
