The research and progress in electrochemical nitrite sensing are continuously increasing and have a great choice of interest by researchers and scientists. Therefore, understanding the topics of interest and expanding the network of collaborations are necessary to advance the research development towards integrated and beneficial efforts. This bibliometric study aims to use the VOSviewer to evaluate the global research trends in the fields of electrochemical nitrite sensing area based on the publication of the journal name, keyword co-occurrences, co-authorship, and country. A total of 387 journal articles published between 2000 to 2021 were analyzed using the Scopus database. Since 2000, the data shows that the studies released tend to increase year by year. The most productive countries are China, India, and United States. In conclusion, water pollution, pollution detection, ligands, layered semiconductors, heavy metals, and carbon black have the potential to be a hotspot for future research in this field.
