A rapid, sensitive and selective method has been developed for the determination of palladium with 5,6-dimethyl-1,3-indanedione-2-oxime in acetate buffer (pH 5.5). Beer's law is obeyed over the range 0.15-4.17 μg/ml palladium(II). The molar absorptivity at 370 nm is 2.98 × 1041.mole-1.cm-1. The method has been applied for the determination of palladium in synthetic mixtures corresponding to PtIr and Oakay alloys. An interesting feature of the system is the abnormal shape of the Job and molar-ratio plots obtained. © 1991.
