Abstract: SPE (Solid Polymer Electrolyte) composite electrodes were utilized for the selective oxidation of allyl alcohol to aldehyde. In order to enhance the reaction selectivity, manganese dioxide was deposited into the Nafion as a mediator. Cinnamyl alcohol was selectively oxidized to cinnamaldehyde with high current efficiency.
