This paper is an attempt to reveal some of the chemical properties of certain antiradiation drugs, along with some closely related compounds. The research includes the effect of mercaptoethylguanidine, mercaptopropylguanidine, 2-mereaptoethy'lamine 2-aminoethanethiosulfuric acid, 2-aminoethaneselenosulfuric acid, 2-mercaptoethanol, 3-mercaptopropylamine, N-decylaminoethane thicl, N, N' bis(mercaptoacetyl) hydrazine, diethyldithiocarbamic acid, cysteine, 3-mercaptopropionic acid, mercaptoacetic acid, thiomalic acid, tbiolactic acid, thiosalicylic acid, N,N-dimethylaminoethane thiol, and 2-amino-1-pentane thiol on the shape and characteristics of the polarographic cobalt (II) wave.
