    • Abstract


      Benzophenones undergo a one-step two-electron reduction in molten acetamide containing sodium acetate, both at the mercury and the glassy carbon electrodes. The reduction process is irreversible. TheE1/2 potentials of some of the benzophenones can be fitted into a Hammett plot. Theαna andkf, ho are evaluated and discussed.
