The polarographic reduction of the title azodye has been studied, a mechanism has been proposed for this process and conditions have been found for the determination of this substance by TAST polarography, with a detection limit of 7 . 10-7 mol l-1, differential pulse polarography at a dropping mercury electrode with a detection limit of 3.5 . 10-7 mol l-1, fast scan differential pulse voltammetry at a static mercury drop electrode with a detection limit of 6.9 . 10-9 mol l-1 and voltammetry with linearly increasing voltage at a hanging mercury drop with a detection limit of 1.6 . 10-9 mol l-1.
