It is well known that “diamond” has ultra-high hardness and low electrical conductivity. However, introducing dopants such as boron into the diamond lattice during growth can increase its conductivity. Boron-doped diamond (BDD) with high conductivity is attracting increasing attention as one of the next-generation of superior electrode materials. In particular, it is expected that BDD electrodes can help solve some of our environmental problems and also improve our quality of life through their use in biomedical devices. Here, in this article, recent developments in the electrochemical applications of boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrodes are introduced.
