    • Abstract


      The electroreduction of 2-nitrobenzidine (2-NB) in buffered methanol-water mixtures in the composition range 20–80% (v/v) and pH range 2.80–12.00 gave a single six-electron diffusion-controlled irreversible wave. On the basis of the results obtained, a diphenoquinone-diimine intermediate is suggested in the mechanism of 2-NB reduction in methanol-water mixtures.
