Electrochemical Oxidation Of Aromatic Aldehydes In Acidic Media
WARF: P180052US01

Inventors: Kyoung-Shin Choi, Stephen Kubota

The Invention
Methods for electrochemically oxidizing aromatic aldehydes, such as furfural and furfural derivatives, to carboxylic acids in acidic solutions are provided. Also provided are electrochemical cells for carrying out the oxidation reactions. The electrochemical oxidations may be conducted in aqueous media at ambient pressure and mild temperatures.
