Polarographic Reduction of Cinnamaldehyde; Comparison with 3-Phenylpropionaldehyde and Phenylpropargylaldehyde

Abstract

For the polarographic reduction of α,β-unsaturated ketones, it was established fairly early1 that the first two-electron step corresponds to the hydrogenation of the C=C bond in contrast with the rather vague ideas proposed to explain the reduction of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes, especially cinnamaldehyde.
