The Introduction is concerned with some general aspects of organic electrochemistry. The Discussion is divided into two sections: electrochemistry in acetonitrile (Section A) and liquid ammonia (Section B). Practical aspects, e.g. solvent purification, cell design and electrode construction, are considered. Several supporting electroytes and electrode materials are also assayed. A comparison with results obtained by other workers has been made wherever possible and the influence of proton donors and supporting electrolyte cations on the reduction has been studied.
