Electrochemical oxidation of propionaldehyde and butyraldehyde on a gold electrode

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The electrooxidation of propionaldehyde and butyraldehyde on a gold electrode was studied by cyclic voltammetry in alkaline media. Electrooxidation of both aldehydes showed the appearance of two anodic peaks. Another oxidation peak on a newly generated electrode surface was observed after the corresponding reduction peak for both aldehydes.
