Electrocatalytic oxidation of n-propanol to produce propionic acid using an electrocatalytic membrane reactor

Author affiliations

Abstract

An electrocatalytic membrane reactor assembled using a nano-MnO2 loading microporous Ti membrane as an anode and a tubular stainless steel as a cathode was used to oxidize n-propanol to produce propionic acid. The high efficiency and selectivity obtained is related to the synergistic effect between the reaction and separation in the reactor.
