Definition: That branch of electrochemistry concerned with the variation in current flowing through a solution as the voltage is varied; this will vary with the ionic concentration of reducible substances so that polarography can be used in chemical analysis. Polarography is commonly employed in the form of a reduction at a dropping mercury electrode.
[Mod. L. polaris, polar, + G. grapho, to write]
