Abstract

Conductive composites of acrylamide and triethylene glycol dimethacrylate were prepared via frontal polymerization with various Raney nickel- and Pd/C content. These materials are proven to be applicable as electrodes in organic electrosynthesis. The incorporation of electrocatalytic metals results in a significant change in the chemoselectivity of the electroreduction of acetophenone, which indicates a change in the mechanism from electronation-protonation to electrocatalytic hydrogenation.
