Electrochemical deoxygenation reaction via bulk electrolysis

Bulk electrolysis is also known as potentiostatic coulometry or controlled potential coulometry. The experiment is a form of coulometry which generally employs a three electrode system controlled by a potentiostat. In the experiment the working electrode is held at a constant potential (volts) and current (amps) is monitored over time (seconds). In a properly run experiment an analyte is quantitatively converted from its original oxidation state to a new oxidation state, either reduced or oxidized. As the substrate is consumed, the current also decreases, approaching zero when the conversion nears completion.


  • Designed and developed the techniques for the three-electrode bulk electrochemistry for
    deoxygenation reaction.
  • Bulk electrolysis products were analyzed with several analytical techniques such as atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), Single-Crystal XRD, NMR, IR, GC-MS, and ESI-MS spectroscopy
