The electrochemical reductive decomposition of chloroform was carried out using 15 kinds of metal electrodes. The efficiency of the decomposition and the main product of reaction largely depended on the metal electrodes. The hydrogenation of chloroform by Ag, Zn, Pd and Cu electrodes proceeded in about 100% efficiency. These electrodes produced methane mainly. Pb electrode produced dichloromethane selectively.
