Abstract
THE NUMBER OF STABLE, INEXPENSIVE, ELECTROCATALYTIC ANODE MATERIALS AVAILABLE FOR THE ELECTROSYNTHESIS OF CHEMICALS ISQUITE LIMITED. A NOVEL HIGH SURFACE AREA LEAD DIOXIDE ELECTRODE WILL BE PREPARED, CHARACTERIZED AND EMPLOYED IN THE PHASE I RESEARCH EFFORT FOR A VARIETY OF ORGANIC ELECTROCHEMICAL PROCESSES. HIGH SURFACE AREA CARBONS OF HIGH OXIDATION STABILITY WILL BE USED AS THE SUBSTRATE ON WHICH LEAD DIOXIDE WILL BE DEPOSITED FROM STRONGLY ACIDIC MEDIA. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HIGH SURFACE AREA LEAD DIOXIDE VS. PLANAR LEAD DIOXIDE WILL BE EVALUATED FOR THE REGENERATION OF CR (VI) AND CE (IV). THE CR (VI) AND CE (IV) WILL THEN BE USED FOR THE <169>EXCELL<170> SYNTHESIS OFNAPHTHOQUINONE AND ANTHRAQUINONE. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE HIGH SURFACE AREA LEAD DIOXIDE ELECTRODE WILL PROVIDE SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE WHEN COMPARED TO PLANAR LEAD DIOXIDE, RESULTING IN LOWER OVERALL CELL CAPITAL AND OPERATING COSTS.
