    • Abstract


      The polarographic reduction of aromatic isothiocyanates takes place in a single 4e reduction wave in the B.R. buffers of pH 4·6-10·0. Thelimiting current is diffusion controlled and the waves are irreversible in nature. The half wave potential and limiting current are independent of pH. The reduction in these compounds occurs at -N = C = S group and the effect of substituents has been interpreted in the terms of Hammett equation. The value of specific reaction constant (ρ) is found to be 0·12 V and the positive sign of ρ indicates the nucleophilic nature of the reduction.
