The effect of the ligand concentration on the polarographic reduction waves of the platinum metals has been studied using pyridine as the ligand and palladium as a representative of the platinum metals. The shift in the reduction peak with increase in ligand concentration is used to calculate formation constants of the complexes formed in solution. The results obtained are discussed on the basis of statistical, symmetry and d-level splitting-considerations.
