The electrochemical reduction of perchlorate ions is surveyed in the light of experimental results. The indications of the occurrence of perchlorate reduction in voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and in experiments applying the radiotracer method, the electrochemical bending beam technique, and impedance spectroscopy are presented. Some possible mechanisms of the complicated reduction processes are discussed. Environmental aspects and some methods for perchlorate removal and wastewater treatment are briefly summarized.
