Abstract

 

The pH effect on the Pd-catalyzed oxidn. of glucose to gluconic acid was studied. The oxidn. reactions were performed in the pH range 2 to 9 in a batch reactor using Pd/C or Pd black as the catalysts and monitoring the behavior of the catalyst during the oxidn. reaction. The Pd-glucose system was also studied by cyclic voltammetry. It is concluded that gluconic acid in its free form reversibly inhibits the oxidn. process in acidic media.
