Abstract The polarography of acidified solutions of molybdenum(VI) and thioacetamide is described. At pH 3.0 and concentrations of Mo(VI) above 1 × 10 −5 M and of thioacetamide about 1 × 10 −3 M chemical reduction by thioacetamide is very slow and a polarographic catalytic hydrogen wave is easily recorded. This can be used to determine molybdate and thioacetamide. More significantly, phosphate and silicate can be determined with a measure of amplification.
