Influences of electrolyte composition on the cathodic electronegative potential


Hey guys,

i'm planing to reduce some nitro paraffins via electrolysis on lead electrodes.
In the patent US4678549A nitroalcohols are electrochemical reduced to the corresponding aminoalcohols.

Because of the solubility issues of the nitro paraffins in aqueous media, I want to use an aqueous ethanolic solution of sulfuric acid to solve it.

The electrolysis "must" be done on a specific electrode potential which is given in the reference patent.
But the measurement of the cathodic potential with reference electrode seems to be impossible for me over the next months.

So my questions are:

Does the content of ethanol have an influence on the cathodic potential?
And is Diethyl ether generated as an side product on usage of ethanol in the catholyte?

Have thanks and a nice weekend
