Bipolar electrochemistry is a concept with a quite long history, but has only very recently revealed its virtues in the field nanoscience. It allows controlled surface modification at the micro- and nanoscale, with very original applications ranging from analytical chemistry to material science. Here we review some of the latest achievements in the field and explain why this straight forward concept leads to a very attractive tool for shaping the micro- and nanoworld.
