The electrochemical reduction of five organic carbonates, EC, PC, DEC, DMC and VC were studied via cyclic voltammetry at a Au electrode. More detailed studies of the chemistry of VC reduction were carried out using IRRAS at a glassy carbon electrode. The measured reduction potentials for EC, DEC and PC were consistent with thermodynamic values calculated using density functional theory (DFT) assuming one-electron reduction to the radical anion. The experimental values for VC and DMC were,doi:10.1149/1.1415547 fatcat:nugrllhcbzekpclzdnwqtgpua4
