4DescriptionAbstract The electrochemical reduction of 4-(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-naphthalene)-1-tetralone was investigated in aprotic solvent dimethylsulphoxide at glassy carbon electrode (GCE) using the technique of cyclic voltammetry at room temperature. The reduction of tetralone carried out in acidic medium which is irreversible and involves transfer of two electrons. The intensity of cathodic peak current increases with increasing scan rate consistent with Randles-Sevcik equation. A linear behavior of peak current versus square root of scan rate indicates that the electrochemical reduction processes are diffusion controlled.
