Abstract

Polarographic and voltammetric behavior of 1,5-dinitronaphthalene was investigated using tast polarography and differential pulse polarography at a classic dropping mercury electrode and differential pulse voltammetry and adsorptive stripping voltammetry at a hanging mercury drop electrode. Optimum conditions have been found for the determination of tested substance in the concentration range 2-10 μmol l-1 in tast polarography, 0.2-1 μmol l-1 in differential pulse polarography at a classic dropping mercury electrode or differential pulse voltammetry at a hanging mercury drop electrode, and 0.02-0.1 μmol l-1 using adsorptive stripping voltammetry. A possible mechanism of the electrochemical reduction of 1,5-dinitronaphthalene at mercury electrodes is discussed.
