Pair synthesis is the appropriate pragmatic method of energy conservation in electrochemical reactors,In this direction this work is on paired electrosynthesis of sorbital and calcium gluconate from glucose. A sintered nickel matrix is used as cathode and graphite sheet as anode. The feed solution to the reactor contain NaBr, glucose and calcium carbonate, The reaction scheme is modelled. Rate equations are written for each component. Tafel behaviour is assumed, The macrokinetics of the reaction is studied by performing experiment, in a undivided electrochemical parallel plate electrolyzer. The selectivity of sorbital is high below (2A/dm(2)) and the selectivity of calcium gluconate is high above (2A/dm(2))
