Electrooxidation of morin hydrate at a Pt electrode studied by cyclic voltammetry.

The process and the kinetics of the electrochemical oxidation of morin in an anhydrous electrolyte have been investigated using cyclic and differential pulse voltammetry. The oxidation mechanism proceeds in sequential steps related to the hydroxyl groups in the three aromatic rings. The oxidation of the 2',4'dihydroxy moiety at the B ring of morin occurs… CONTINUE READING
