Abstract: The samples with the complicated matrix containing organic substances have to be mineralized by wet combustion in the mixture of acids. Palladium is then extracted from the HCl medium with quaternary ammonium salts into toluene and reextracted by alkaline NH4NO3 solution which is the base electrolyte for polarographic determination. During the adjustment of the sample the preconcentration of palladium takes place. The determination limit is 2.5 μg dm-3 in 100 cm3 of the sample. The determination is practically selective with respect to other metals, the determination limit is worsened only by the presence of cadmium.
