Youngkook Kwon, Klaas Jan P. Schouten and Prof. Marc T. M. Koper Mechanism of the Catalytic Oxidation of Glycerol on Polycrystalline Gold and Platinum Electrodes ChemCatChem 3
Oh! Let me see! Glycerol electro-oxidation mechanism on Au and Pt electrodes under different pH conditions was investigated by applying a new high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for studying the dissolved reaction products and by using online mass spectrometry (OLEMS) for detecting CO2. Both the activity and product distributions of glycerol oxidation are strongly dependent on pH and catalyst; however, the general reaction pathways do not change.
