The application of differential pulse polarography to elucidation of the mechanisms of electroreduction of some heterocyclic herbicides is presented, showing that modern polarographic techniques are useful in fields different from electroanalysis. The methodology is briefly exposed and the results of its application to reduction of 1,3,5-triazine and pyridine herbicides are discussed.
