A review. High-temp. electrochem. remains a relatively unexplored field of research, although in recent years significant developments were made. This report details the main exptl. methods and approaches to heating an electrochem. system under both isothermal and nonisothermal conditions and gives an insight into the exptl. and electroanal. results obtainable under such conditions. The promotion of mass transport at high-temps., through diffusion or convection, often results in increased current signals. This increase benefits electroanal. measurements by lowering detection limits. High temps. also usefully enhance the sensitivity of systems with sluggish kinetics. [on SciFinder(R)]
