The Polarographic Behavior of Carotene and Its Determination

Wang Nai-xing, Zhang Xiao-ling and Su Xiao-di   

Abstract: The differential pulse polarographic behaviour of carotene in nonaqueous media have been investigated. The detection limit is 3.7 × 10-7mol/l. This method provides a rapid and simple way for direct determination of carotene and is also successfully applied in practice in plant samples.

Key words: Carotene, Differential pulse polarography
