Abstract : Polarographic reduction potentials have been measured for polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons and their parameters for structurally similar hydrocarbons have been related to the positions of the respective long wavelength p bands. Polarographic reduction potentials have also been determined for a series of substituted pyrenes and anthracenes. Polarographic reduc tion potentials are shown to relate to the electronic effect of the substituent group. The application of polarography to the characteri zation of aromatics in complex pyrolytic residues is discussed. (Author)
