The electrochemical oxidation of catechol (1) in the presence of sulfanilic acid (2) was investigated. Some electrochemical (EC) techniques such as cyclic voltammetry and controlled-potential coulometry were used. The oxidation reaction of catechol (1) with periodate in the presence of sulfanilic acid (2) was also investigated spectrophotometrically. The results indicate that the o-quinone derived from catechol participate in Michael addition reaction with sulfanilic acid (2). In addition, according to the ECE mechanism, the observed homogeneous rate constant (kobs) for the reaction of o-quinone derived from catechol (1) with sulfanilic acid (2) has been estimated by digital simulation of cyclic voltammograms.
