Polarographic and cyclic voltammetric studies of bromohydrins in acetonitrile showed a single diffusion-limited two-electron irreversible cathodic wave/peak followed by chemical transformations. Controlled-potential electrolyses of the compounds gave a mixture of two products with epoxide as one of them in all cases. The mechanism of reduction is discussed in the light of proton-transfer reactions in neutral aprotic media. © 1993.
