A method for the elimination of various components of the polarographic current is proposed, based on its differentiation and/or integration with respect to time forming a linear combination of the results with the original current. A linear combination of n different functions can be used to eliminate n - 1 current components. Examples for the elimination of the charging, diffusion, and kinetic current are given, and the possibilities of realization and utilization of the new method are discussed.
