Ammonium 4-phenylpiperazine-1-dithiocarbamate (Amm 4-PP-DTC) and ammonium 4-benzylpiperidine-1-dithiocarbamate (Amm 4-BP-DTC) were synthesized for the determination of nickel(II) using catalytic hydrogen currents (CHC’s) technique with DC Polarography. The method was based on the chelation of nickel(II) with Amm 4-PP-DTC/ Amm 4-BP-DTC in presence of NH 4 OH at pH 6.8 to produce catalytic hydrogen current at -1.50V and -1.41 V vs. SCE respectively. Optimized polarographic conditions were established by studying effect of pH, supporting electrolyte (NH4Cl), ligands and metal ion concentration and effect of adverse ions on peak height to improve the sensitivity, selectivity and detection limits of the present method. This technique is successfully applied for the analysis of nickel(II) in different matrices with recoveries ranging from 96.0-99.0 % and the results obtained were comparable with the atomic absorption spectroscopy.
