Local electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (LEIS), which provides a powerful tool for exploration of electrode heterogeneity, has its roots in the development of electrochemical techniques employing scanning of microelectrodes. The historical development of local impedance spectroscopy measurements is reviewed, and guidelines are presented for implementation of LEIS. The factors which control the limiting spatial resolution of the technique are identified. The mathematical foundation for the technique is reviewed, including definitions of interfacial and local Ohmic impedances on both local and global scales. Experimental results for the reduction of ferricyanide show the correspondence between local and global impedances. Simulations for a single Faradaic reaction on a disk electrode embedded in an insulator are used to show that the Ohmic contribution, traditionally considered to be a real value, can have complex character in certain frequency ranges.
