The application of electroanalytical techniques plays a very important role in
the field of medicinal and pharmaceutical research. These techniques have been
routinely used by analytical, inorganic, organic physical as well as biological chemists.
In recent years the various voltammetric methods such as Differential pulse
voltammetry, Cyclic voltammetry, Linear sweep voltammetry, Square wave
voltammetry, Stripping voltammetry etc have gained enormous attention for the
determination of different classes of drugs. Electroanalytical techniques gain supreme
importance over other techniques in terms of the quantization of trace and ultra-trace
components of biological fluids as well as pharmaceutical substances. Therefore, these
techniques are alternative in detection and analysis due to their sensitivity,
reproducibility and selectivity in terms of qualitative as well as quantitative aspects of
the analyte under investigation. The present review focuses on the application of
various voltammetric techniques for the analysis of analgesics, antibiotics,
anthelmintic, anti-tubercular and anticancer drugs covering the period from 2015 to

Keywords: Analgesics, Anthelmintics, Antibiotic, Anticancer, Antitubercular, Cyclic voltammetry, Drug detection, Electroanalytical techniques.
