Electrochemical Reductive Dehalogenation of Brominated and Chlorinated Organic Compounds in Water-Methanol Media on a Boron - Doped Diamond Electrode: A Voltammetric Study

Author(s): S. M. Kulikov and K. M. Juettner

Electrochemical reduction of the 1,2-dibromoethane, chloroform, and bromobenzene on the Boron Doped Diamond Electrode (BDDE) was studied in aqueous methanol media. The reaction was studied at room temperature in the potential region between 0.0 and - 2.2 V vs. SHE by the linear sweep voltammetry method. In the presence of halogen-organic compounds, the cathodic current at a given potential was significantly higher than the background current.
