Abstract

A graphite felt electrode modified with (6S,7R,10R)-4-amino-2,2,7-trimethyl-10-isopropyl-1-azaspiro[5.5]undecane N-oxyl was prepared for electrocatalytic oxidation of diols; electrolysis of diols on the modified electrode yielded optically active lactones (92.0-96.4%), with an enantiopurity of 82-99% ee.
