Cryoelectrochemical reduction of a phenyl sulfide in tetrahydrofuran: mediated reduction gives different products compared to direct reduction

Abstract:

An electrocatalytic reduction of [(3-{[trans-4-(methoxymethoxy)cyclohexyl] oxy}propyl)thio]benzene (RSPh) in the presence of naphthalene as a mediator is investigated, using steady-state voltammetry at various sized platinum microelectrodes and at low temperature (201 K) in tetrahydrofuran (THF). This mediated process has been found to involve the transfer of one electron, in contrast to the direct electrochemical reduction which involves two electrons. In addition, the mediated reduction pro...
