Interactions between lead and ascorbic acid were investigated by polarography and voltammetry. The following techniques were applied: sampled polarography, differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry, and square-wave voltammetry. Measurements were performed in perchlorate aqueous solutions under physiological ionic strength (0.15 mol dm(-3)). Electrochemical reaction of the lead(II) ascorbate complex was studied in various electrolyte compositions to find the optimal measurement conditions for determination of the corresponding stability constants ([Pb2+] = 4 x 10(-7) mol dm(-3), pH = 5.5; total concentration of ascorbic acid between 10(-5) and 10(-1) mol dm(-3)). Determination of stability constants of labile lead(II) ascorbate complexes was based on the DeFord-Hume methodology, and they were calculated from the dependence of the shift of Pb-II peak potential on the free ascorbate ion concentration. The computed stability constants were: log beta(1) = 9.3 +/- 0.2 and log beta(2) = 18.0 +/- 0.1.
