By connecting a column electrolysis method with a stopped-flow technique, a pulse-electrolysis stopped-flow method has been developed. This method has many advantages that it can be applied not only to the detection and characterization of unstable intermediates but also to the analysis of the reaction kinetics of heterogeneous electrode reactions as homogeneous reactions. In addition, this method can be utilized combined with various spectroscopic observations including UV-visible, resonance Raman (RR) and electrogenerated chemilumiluminescence (ECL) measurements. In this review, the advantages of this method are demonstrated with many successful results obtained using the pulse-electrolysis stopped-flow method.
