Analytical studies on anodic ethoxylation of salicylic acid
Author(s): Dr. S Antony Sakthi
Abstract: Electro organic chemistry is a multidisciplinary science overlapping the vast fields of organic chemistry, biochemistry, physical chemistry and electrochemistry. The electrochemical oxidation of aromatic compounds on graphite and platinum electrode in alcoholic media has observed to yield ethers or acetals as a sequence of addition or substitution by alkoxy groups. This research work is having the major stress on electro analytical aspects of salicylic acid. These electro analytical studies include (i) cyclic voltammogram, (ii) working electrode variation studies (iii) pH variation studies (iv) scan rate variation studies and (v) multiple scan studies with an intention to explore whether the envisaged anodic process is possible or not. From the analytical studies, the oxidation potentials, favorable pH condition for the ethoxylation and also the formation of polymer on the working electrodes are predicted.
