A polarographic analysis of the two gold complexes, dicyanoaurate (I) and tetracyanoaurate (III), was undertaken. Both complexes were shown to have distinguishable current-voltage curves. Previous work on the dicyanoaurate (I) was confirmed, and new data was added for the low concentrations. The tetracyanoaurate (III) was investigated, and the half-wave potential was found to be -0.32 volts. Maxima problems with the complex were encountered and resolved.
