Electrocatalytic functionalization of alkanes using aqueous platinum salts


p-Toluenesulfonic acid is electrocatalytically hydroxylated to the alcohol,p-HO₃SC₆H₄CH₂OH, by a system consisting of aqueous PtCl₄²⁻ as C-H activation catalyst, phosphomolybdic acid as redox mediator, in an electrochemical cell containing a carbon cloth anode.
