Boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrodes are next generation electrode materials and their electrochemical applications have been actively developed in recent years. They are expected to be useful electrode materials for improving the environment and for bio-medical applications. Here, examples of practical applications as electrochemical sensors, the development of in vivo real time measurements, and electrochemical organic synthesis using BDD electrodes are briefly introduced. In the second part, our recent work on the production of useful chemicals by means of the electrochemical reduction of CO2 using BDD electrodes is described. The work has attracted particular attention for its potential contribution to carbon neutrality and carbon recycling.
