It is contained in many foods, but it is also part of the chemical component of oceans and soil. Its deficiency is still a problem of humanity, which has a serious repercussion on our health. It is therefore important to have specific, fast and cost effective methods of iodine detection from different samples. This work aims to identify optimal parameters for potassium iodide (KI) detection from different media, to be further applied to real samples: plant extracts, water, biological fluids. Results showed a significant difference in electrochemical results, depending on the pH values of the mixture and also on the time which influences the compounds stability. Differential pulse voltammetry and cyclic voltammetry using carbon printed sensors, as well as microsensors for redox status or direct iodide detection are important analytical tools which have a wide range of applications in the food, medicine, toxicology and other domains.
