Abstract : A very brief summary is given work on the electrochemical reduction of meta-dinitrobenzene in dimethyl sulfoxide and in liquid ammonia solutions. Also mentioned is research pertaining to electrochemical cells with relatively high potential formed using a lithium negative and graphite positive in dimenthyl sulfite and propylene carbonate solutions. It was believed that the positive electrode reaction involves the formation of a lamellar compound of graphite with the electrolyte anion.
