Abstract

Herein we report high-valency ruthenium (Ru) species as a new class of electrocatalyst for glycerol oxidation. In this study, Ru-modified covalent triazine framework (Ru-CTF) and ruthenium oxide supported on carbon (RuO2/C) were used as model materials with high-valency Ru species. The results of this work show that the deep oxidation reactions of glycerol involving C-C bond cleavage can be effectively suppressed by increasing the glycerol concentration relative to the number of active Ru atoms for both catalysts.
