Polarographic reduction potentials (E ½) have been measured for polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. The E ½ parameters for structurally similar hydrocarbons have been related to the positions of the respective long wavelength "p" bands. Polarographic reduction potentials have also been determined for a series of substituted pyrenes and anthracenes. E ½ is shown to relate to the electronic effect of the substituent group. The application of polarography to the characterization of aromatics in complex pyrolytic residues is discussed.
