Abstract

Electrocatalytic oxidation of amines was studied using (±)trans, cis-4- benzoyloxy-2,2, 8a-trimethyldecahydroquinolinyl-N-oxyl. The reaction with amines led to direct formation of carbonyl compounds in aqueous media in adequate conversion (> 78 %), high current efficiency (> 90 %) and high selectivity (100 %). Under anhydrous conditions, primary amines were also oxidized to the corresponding nitriles in satisfactory conversion (> 76 %), high current efficiency (> 89 %) and high selectivity (> 95 %).
