Abstract

The oxidation of tetrahydrofuran was investigated at a platinized platinum electrode in aqueous acidic medium by potentiostatic polarization measurements coupled with indirect radiotracer adsorption studies. Phenomena occurring in the course of the oxidation of THF are very similar to those observed in the case of diols. At low potentials (300-500 mV on rhe scale) only the formation of strongly chemisorbed species occurs. These species inhibit the main oxidation process leading to succinic acid. A reaction sequence composed of several steps is proposed for the interpretation of the phenomena observed.
