    • Abstract


      A polarographic study of the Pt(II)-salicylaldehyde thiosemicarbazone complex in sodium perchlorate as supporting electrolyte is described. In addition to the reduction wave of the complex, a catalytic hydrogen wave is also recorded. The characteristics of this catalytic hydrogen wave are studied under different experimental conditions such as varying acid/complex/supporting electrolyte/surfactant concentrations and also with mercury droptime. Based on these, a probable mechanism for the electrode process has been postulated.
