Abstract

1,4-Di(2-pyridylmethyl)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoxaline-6,7-dione (6a) was synthesized via the electrooxidation of catechol (1a) in the presence of N1, N2-di(2-pyridylmethyl)-ethylenediamine (3) in aqueous solution. A reaction mechanism was proposed base on the result of cyclic voltammetry and controlled-potential coulometry. The electrochemical synthesis of compound (6a) was performed successfully at a carbon rod electrode in an undivided cell in good yield and with high product purity.
