Abstract Maleic acid (MA) is reduced in a two electron diffusion limited, irreversible step to succinic acid at a HMDE in buffered media at pH =8.5. Galvanostatic reduction of MA in 0.53 M H2SO4 and 0.1 M Na2SO4 (pH 8.1) in an undivided cell yielded succinic acid (SA) in high yields. The product has been characterized by FTIR and 1H-NMR. Based on the results obtained, a plausible mechanism of reduction of MA has been suggested in various media
