Electroanalysis can provide valuable information on the molecular interactions, biological activity and pharmacological potential of alkaloids. This article summarizes current knowledge on the electrochemical properties of a broad spectrum of alkaloids using polarography and voltammetry. Alkaloid interactions with DNA and proteins using electrochemical techniques are also described. More than 100 references published in the last 70 years are reviewed.
