Sustainable electroorganic synthesis of lignin-derived dicarboxylic acids

Abstract

The oxidative ring opening of lignin-derived alkylated cyclohexanols to bio-based alkylated dicarboxylic acids is successfully performed by an electrocatalytic conversion. To establish this transformation as a green method, we developed a simple protocol for the anodic oxidation at nickel oxide-hydroxide (NiOOH) foam anodes in caustic soda in both a batch and flow electrolysis approach.
