The possibility of electrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide using benzyl as a homogeneous electron transfer mediator was shown. It was found that oxalic acid is the main product in the processes of electrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide.

Key word electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide, benzyl, oxalic acid, electrocatalysis.
