LIU, Yao Cho y ROMERO, José Ricardo. Electrocatalytic oxidation of b-dicarbonyl compounds using ceric methanesulphonate as mediator. Quím. Nova [online]. 1998, vol.21, n.2, pp. 144-145. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40421998000200007.
b-dicarbonyl compounds were oxidized electrocatalytically, with fragmentation and loss of "ch2", using ceric methanesulphonate as a mediator. 2,4-pentanedione yields acetic acid (90%), methyl acetoacetate yields acetic acid (84%) plus methanol and dimethyl malonate yields methanol (64%). For 1,3-diphenyl-1,3-propanedione and 1,3-cyclohexanedione, benzoic acid (61% yield) and glutaric acid (75% yield) were obtained, respectively. Methyl cyanoacetate and malononitrile were inert.
