A mathematical mechanism model is developed for the electroreduction of carbonyl compounds in an acidic solution and shows that the formation ratio of hydrodimeric to hydromonomeric products, i.e. the product-selectivity, depends on substrate concentration, mass transfer coefficient and current density. Model calculations are in agreement with experimental results from the electroreduction of p-methylbenzaldehyde using a rotating cylinder cathode and explain a drastic effect of mass transport on the product-selectivity.
