For the first time, anodic methoxylation of 2-oxazolidinone was investigated on boron doped diamond (BDD) in CH3OH\H2SO4 medium. Voltammetric studies reveal that the 2-oxazolidinone gets oxidised at a potential of 1.5 V vs. SCE on the BDD, whereas on the graphite, the anodic oxidation takes place in the potential region of methanol oxidation. Galvanostatic electrolysis results in the formation of 4-methoxy-2-oxazolidinone (MOD) as a single product in high yield on the BDD and multiple products, along with MOD on the graphite. Generation of methoxy radical on the BDD was confirmed by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy.
