This is an analytical study of germanium by adsorption stripping squarewave voltammetry. Tannic acid was used as a ligand. The accumulation potential was -0.2V, accumulation time was carried out for 60 second under constant stirring, followed by a 20 second quiescent period, and frequency was 10Hz. A hanging mercury drop electrode was used as a working electrode and acetate buffer solution, pH=4.5, as supporting electrolyte. The proper conditions of ligand for germanium analysis was established. The effect of metal ions(lead, cupper, silicon, tin, gallium) on germanium peak was also studied.
