Abstract

Enzyme inhibition coupled to flow injection systems set-ups are a powerful tool for the monitoring of environmental toxics. The present review examines the latest contributions to this field where electrochemical detection is used. The advantages and limitations of the FIA technique in the context of enzyme inhibition analytical procedures are discussed. The present review is organized in accordance to the enzyme (cholinesterases, tyrosinases, or alkaline phosphatase) used in the measurement.
