Abstract

Aerobic substrate oxidation reactions catalyzed by a heterogeneous catalyst can be looked upon as two independent half-cell reactions, viz. anodic substrate oxidation and the cathodic oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). In this context, Fe PANI/C, a well-known catalyst for the ORR, is chosen to validate this hypothesis, wherein the anodic reaction is hydrazine oxidation. Fe PANI/C shows excellent activity in terms of the electrochemical ORR and hydrazine oxidation in both alkaline aqueous and non-aqueous media and taken together the aerobic oxidation efficacy of hydrazine-like small organic molecules is correlated with the electrochemical outcomes.
