The electrocatalytic reduction of 1,2-dibromoethane and tetrabromoethane with CoTPP in DMF solutions containing 0.1 M TBAP was investigated at a Pt ultramicroelectrode. The experimental results indicated that CoTPP obviously exhibited catalytic activity for 1,2-dibromoethane and tetrabromoethane. The rate constants of 1,2-dibromoethane and tetrabromoethane in this system were calculated to be 0.14 × 103and 0.5 × 102M-1S-1, respectively. The reaction mechanism of 1,2-dibromoethane and tetrabromoethane reduction electrocatalysed by CoTPP in 0.1 M TBAP DMF solution is discussed. © 1993.
