Electrochemical reduction of functionalized carbonyl compounds: enhanced reactivity over tailored nanoporous gold

Author affiliations

Abstract

The effect of the pore size of nanoporous gold on electrochemical reduction of functionalized carbonyl compounds was investigated. NPG with a pore size of ∼30 nm significantly enhanced the reactivity with high chemo-selectivity at a low-potential. Typically, p-nitrobenzaldehyde reduction demonstrates a high turnover frequency (TOF) up to 232 000 h−1.
