Abstract: The electrochemical oxidation of bromide in the presence of 1,3-indandione (1) in water/acetic acid and methanol/acetic acid mixtures has been studied by cyclic voltammetry and controlled-potential coulometry. The results indicate the participation of 1,3-indandione in the bromination reaction. On the basis of the electroanalytical and preparative results a reaction mechanism including electron transfer, chemical reaction and regeneration of bromide was discussed. The electrochemical synthesis of bromo derivatives of 1,3-indandione (2-3) has been successfully performed at constant current, in an undivided cell, in good yield and purity.
Keywords: Electrochemical oxidation; cyclic voltammetry; 1; 3-indandione; 2-bromo- 1; 3-indandione; 2; 2-dibromo-1; 3-indandione
