Conference paper


The paper deals with the study of both the catalytical and the electrocatalytical oxidation of cyclohexanol to cyclohexanone, because, sometimes, the electrochemical option, can be much better than the chemical one. However, the rate of the direct electrooxidation of cyclohexanol is lower than the rate of catalytic reaction hence, the use of a mediatory system is proposed.
