Oxalic acid has been synthesized from carbon dioxide as its zinc salt on a preparative scale in an undivided cell with soluble anodes like zinc and lead cathode in dimethyl formamide medium with tetrabutyl ammonium perchlorate as supporting electrolyte. The yield efficiency is around 85% with a current efficiency of about 80%. Formation of some oxidisable organic product from reduction of oxalic acid is also indicated
