It has been shown, for the first time, that geometrical isomerization affects the electrochemical reduction of the conjugated nitroalkenes.
The reduction potentials are lower for the E isomers of the esters of α-nitrocinnamic acids than for the companion Z isomers.
The E isomers of these esters adsorb more readily on the dropping mercury electrode than do the companion Z isomers.
