The paper proposes of a new chemical analysis technique that employs the phenomenon of directional scattering of polarized light by the particles of solutions and suspensions. Laboratory tests carried out have demonstrated the existence of a dependence of the scattering indicatrix on the type and concentration of the dissolved substance. To any solution, a several hundred-element space of states can be assigned, in which each of the solutions takes on from several tens to several hundred different values. The process of laser light scattering in solutions is also dependent on the interaction of external magnetic and electric fields and on the wavelength of the laser beam and the way of its modulation. This provides an opportunity for the further expansion of the size of the space of states. As a result, a new research tool will obtained, which will constitute a complement of the optoelectronic techniques used for far in chemical analysis.
