Voltammetric behaviour of acetophenone reduction on glassy carbon (GC) and lead electrodes were investigated in acid, neutral and alkaline media and the results were also compared with the literature data on Hg electrode. In alkaline media, the elec. troreduction on GC electrode takes place at a much more negative potential as compared to metal electrodes. In acidic medium the electroreduction takes place at closer potential ranges on all the three electrodes. Theoretically on the basis of lower densi. ty of states of electron on carbon electrodes, a much slower charge transfer rate on GC electrode should be expected unde~ all the conditions. The experimental observations of the present work is explained by assuming that the acidic surface functional groups present on GC surface catalyses the electroreduction of acetophenone in acid medium
