Title: By-products of electrochemical synthesis of suberic acid

Abstract

By-products of the electrochemical synthesis of dimethyl suberate from glutaric anhydride were studied. This is isolated by thermal dehydration of a mixture of lower dicarboxylic acids that are wastes from the production of adipic acid. To isolate the by-products, they used the methods of vacuum rectification and preparative gas-liquid chromatography, and for their identification, PMR, IR spectroscopy, gas-liquid chromatography, and other known physicochemical methods of investigation.

  • The authors comparatively test a variety of electrode materials for their possible use in an electrolytic cell in which the oxidation and electrolysis of 2-ethyl-1-hexanol leads to the production of 2-ethylhexanoic acid. The materials tested are nickel, platinum, lead, steel-12Kh18N9T, lead oxide, nickel oxide, and carbon cloth; the properties for which they were tested include their electrocatalytic behavior and their comparative ability to enhance the hexanoic acid yield as well as the energy efficiency of the cell. Hexanoic acid yield was measured by titration.

  • Nano-sized particles of spinel LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4} and LiCr{sub x}Mn{sub 2-x}O{sub 4} (x = Cr; 0.00-0.40) have been synthesized using phthalic acid as chelating agent for the first time by sol-gel method. When compared to solid-state synthesis method, the sol-gel route reduces heating time of synthesize and to obtain particles of uniform surface morphology. The synthesized samples were characterized through thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). SEM images of the parent compounds show nanospherical grains of LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4} when compared to chromium-doped ones. XRD patterns of LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4} ascertainmore » amorphous nature and for high calcined LiCr{sub x}Mn{sub 2-x}O{sub 4} single phase highly crystalline patterns were obtained. TEM images of the parent and chromium-doped spinel particles depict individual grain morphology with well-separated grain boundaries. LiCr{sub 0.10}Mn{sub 1.90}O{sub 4} excels in discharge and cycling behaviour and offer higher columbic efficiency, when compared to un-doped LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4}. Cyclic voltammograms of LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4} and LiCr{sub x}Mn{sub 2-x}O{sub 4} exhibit oxidation and reduction peaks corresponding to Mn{sup 3+}/Mn{sup 4+} and Cr{sup 3+}/Cr{sup 4+}.« less
  • Highlights: ► The adoption of tartaric acid lowers the crystallization temperature to 350 °C. ► No capacity decadence is observed in 50 cycles and a discharge capacity of 260 mAh g{sup −1} is obtained after 50 cycles. ► Two phases transition mechanism (Li{sub 4}V{sub 3}O{sub 8} and LiV{sub 3}O{sub 8}) while cycling revealed by in situ XRD. -- Abstract: Lithium-ion battery cathode material Li{sub 1+x}V{sub 3}O{sub 8} was synthesized by a tartaric acid assisted sol–gel method and thermally treated at 350 °C, 450 °C and 550 °C for 3 h for the formation of Li{sub 1+x}V{sub 3}O{sub 8} phase. Themore » synthesized samples were fully characterized by FTIR, TG/DTA, XRD and charge–discharge tests. Li{sub 1+x}V{sub 3}O{sub 8} material synthesized by tartaric acid assisted route, followed by heat treatment at 450 °C for 3 h shows best electro-chemical performance. It shows a high initial capacity of 249 mAh g{sup −1} and still reserves a discharge capacity of 260 mAh g{sup −1} after 50 cycles. Moreover, for all tartaric assisted products, no capacity decadence is observed in 50 cycles. The in situ X-ray measurements reveal a two-phase transition mechanism in the lithium intercalation/deintercalation process. During lithium extraction, the structure of the delithiated compound changes from Li{sub 4}V{sub 3}O{sub 8} (x > 3.1) to the original LiV{sub 3}O{sub 8} phase (x < 1.4) via the coexistence state of these two phases (1.4 < x < 3.2). An obvious contraction, especially at Li(3)–Li(4) transition, along a axis and a slight expansion along b axis are also observed.« less
  • Irradiation of dilute, oxygen-free formic acid solutions with cyclotron- produced protons or helium ions leads to the synthesis of a number of products of higher molecular weight. The compounds identified include oxalic, glyoxylic, glycolic, mesoxalic, tartronic, and tartaric acids, and glyoxal. These products are not formed in appreciable yield by neutron (and gamma -ray) irradiation. The observations are correlated in terms of a reaction mechanism that involves dose rate-dependent steps.
