Three compounds with nitrocarbazole frameworks were synthesized and their electrochemical reversibility as organic electrocatalysts was studied by cyclic voltammetry. The electrochemical reversibility and oxidation-reduction potential of the compounds were greatly affected by their substituents. The oxidation-reduction potential of the compound with an electron-donating group was negative, while that of the compound with an electron-withdrawing group on the carbazole framework was positive. The electrocatalytic oxidation activities of the nitrocarbazole compounds were investigated through cyclic voltammetry and controlled potential electrolysis at room temperature. The electrocatalysts showed excellent selectivity for p-methoxybenzyl alcohol, converting it to the corresponding aldehyde through electro-oxidation with just 2.5 mol% of the electrocatalysts presented. The electrocatalysts maintained their excellent electroredox activity following recycling.
Graphical AbstractThe redox potential and electrochemical reversibility were greatly improved by introducing nitro-group to the carbazole framework. The nitro-carbazole compound showed high activity on the electro-oxidation of alcohol to corresponding aldehyde.Figure optionsDownload as PowerPoint slide
