Abstract : The electrochemistry of thionyl chloride has been studied at glassy carbon electrodes in dimethylformamide with tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate as supporting electrolyte. Techniques employed were normal and reverse pulse voltammetry, rotating ring-disk voltammetry, coulometry and nuclear magnetic resonance. The reactions taking place during the reduction of thionyl chloride in dimethylformamide are probably best represented by the solvation reaction, SOCl2 + 2DMF yields SO.2DMF(2+) + 2 Cl(-) and the electrochemical reaction, SO.2DMF(2+) + 2e yields SO where the product, SO, may be solvated by DMF and can be reoxidized back to the initial reactant.
