Wastewater Minimization in Indirect Electrochemical Synthesis of Phenylacetaldehyde

Received17 Aug 2001
Revised31 Oct 2001
Accepted01 Nov 2001


Wastewater minimization in phenylacetaldehyde production by using indirect electrochemical oxidation of phenylethane instead of the seriously polluting traditional chemical process is described in this paper. Results show that high current efficiency of Mn(III) and high yield of phenylacetaldehyde can be obtained at the same sulfuric acid concentration (60%). The electrolytic mediator can be recycled and there will be no waste discharged.
