- noun a technique for studying ions in solution by comparing the strength of electric currents passing through the solution during electrolysis and the electric potential needed to produce them
- Any of various techniques for quantitative analysis utilizing current-voltage curves generated by low-concentration samples in an electrolytic cell. As a variable potential is applied to such a cell, the relationship of changes in voltage to changes in current are graphed, which can be utilized to identify and study the samples. Also called polarographic analysis.
- synonym polarographic analysis
