Department of Chemistry, S. V. University, Tirupati-517 502 Manuscript received 11 February 1988, accepted 6 April 1988 Substituted-phenacyl bromides, such as m-nitro, p-phenyl, p-methyl, p-methoxy and m-methoxyphenacyl bromides have been reduced electrochemically at dropping mercury electrode and hanging mercury drop electrode using d c. polarography and cyclic voltammetry in 50% (v/v) ethanol- water and DMF- water mixtures. Comparative account of their reduction behaviour in different buffer
