    • Abstract


      Electrochemical oxidation of some catechol derivatives (1a-e) have been studied in water/acetonitrile solution containing 1-methylindole (3) as a nucleophile, using cyclic voltammetry and controlledpotential coulometry. An interesting diversity in the mechanisms has been observed in electrochemical oxidation of catechol derivatives (1a-e) in the presence of 3. In this work, we have proposed reaction schemes $ECEC$, $ECECE$ and $ECECECE$ for oxidation of 1a-e in the presence of 3.
