Because of its broad usage in industry and medical science, as well as the potential toxicity in the environment, the detection of sulfide, including hydrogen sulfide, metal sulfide and organic sulfide, has long attracted the attention of scientists working in diverse areas. Compared with other detection methods, electrochemical detection represents a highly sensitive, rapid, affordable, and simple technique. In this regard, the main objective of this report is to provide an up-to-date review of the electrochemical detection of sulfide. This review details different electrochemical approaches investigated between 2010 and 2012, together with the development of various electrodes. In addition to the commonly used techniques, such as, anodic stripping voltammetry (ASV), amperometry, cyclic voltammetry (CV), photoelectrochemical methods, and electrochemical detection methods coupled with other devices, have also been discussed, within the context of detection limit, linear detection range, and applicable conditions.
