Oxidative cleavage of glycols and related compounds by electrogenerated periodate in a 2-phase anolyte employing phase transfer catalysis is reported. A divided cell with lead dioxiode anode is used to generate periodate which is transferred to the organic phase where oxidation takes place. The iodate formed in this step is transferred back to the aqueous phase and reoxidises to periodate at the anode, completing the catalytic cycle. Iodate can be taken in substoichiometric quanitity. Conversion and selectivity for aldehyde are hiWi in the oxidation of hydrobenzoin, benzoin and erythro -9, IO-dihydroxyoctadecanoic acid.
