Definition of bioelectrochemistry
: the science of electrochemistry as it applies to living systems especially in terms of biochemical and physiological processes (such as electron transport) : electrochemistry as it relates to biological, biomedical, and biotechnological applications (such as biosensors or immunoassays) The researchers hope the unique electronic properties of boranes will lead to monolayers with interesting applications, such as nanocomposites, robust size-selective cation sensors, or electron-transfer mediators for bioelectrochemistry. — Chemical & Engineering News, 28 Sept. 1998
