Abstract

<p>The feasibility of electrochemical conversion of polychlorinated biphenyls to the parent hydrocarbon in <i>N,N</i>-dimethylformamide was studied with respect to the charge and mass efficiency of the process. The process was conducted in two variants, viz. as indirect conversion through pre-electrolysis of an alkali salt solution, and as direct electroreducing splitting of the carbon-chlorine bonds. Mercury served as the working electrode; the suitability of other metals as cathode materials was also examined by slow cyclic voltammetry.
