Palladium (II) was determined spectrophotometrically with dimethylglyoxime as complexing reagent in aqueous phase in presence of an anionic surfactant SDS. Beer’s law was obeyed, over the concentration range 2.0-16.0µg mL-1 with the detection limit 26.6ng mL-1. The and molar absorptivity and Sandell’s sensitivity were 0.4´104L mol-1cm-1and 28.2 ng cm-2 respectively at λmax481nm. Validation of method has been made by comparing the results with those obtained by Atomic Absorption Spectrometry; no significant difference was noted between the two methods at 95% confidence interval. The purpose was to develop rapid, convenient, sensitive, and reproducible spectrophotometric method for the detection of Pd (II) ions at trace level using DMG reagent in 0.02% SDS micellar media and replaced the old solvent extraction method, which was time consuming, costly and use of toxic solvents. The method is simple, accurate and economical and has been successfully applied to the determination of palladium (II) in natural, biological, industrial and environmental samples.
