Although alpha-furildioxime has been known for over forty years, a recent survey of the literature disclosed its use as an analytical reagent has been very limited. Its preparation and use as a reagent for nickel was described by Soule (1), however, no data was found concerning its application to the detection or determination of palladium. Since it is well known that the 1,2-dioximes in general react with palladium as well as nickel to form characteristic, insoluble and highly colored complexes, it was evident that further investigation of the compound should be made. The interest in this laboratory has been concerned principally therefore with the alpha-furildioxime complex of palladium; however, the reports of earlier investigations with nickel were so conflicting it seemed necessary to review this work also.
