The detection and monitoring of lithium in environmental and clinical settings is becomingincreasingly important. In this review, sensors incorporating conductive polymers and lithium bronzes are discussed, together with electrochemical and spectroscopic approaches. Ionophore-based methods have been employed extensively, with varying degrees of selectivity and sensitivity,and these are discussed in depth.
