Polarographic behavior of the genotoxic substance 1,1-dimethyl-3- phenyltriazene was investigated and optimum conditions were found for its determination by sampled direct current polarography and differential pulse polarography at a static mercury drop electrode in the concentration range from 1 × 10-4 to 1 × 10-7 mol l-1. It was established that for reduction of the triazene group four electrons are required resulting in the formation of amino and hydrazo compound. The resulting products were identified, and the reduction pathway was proposed.
