Voltammetric studies and galvanostatic oxidation results for the electrochemical oxidation of octyl. hexyl, butyl, isobutyl and benzyl alcohols on hydrated nickel-cobalt oxide electrode in alkaline media are reported. These compounds are oxidised to their corresponding acids with high efficiency. The electrodes are not contaminated and hence their repeated use for the oxidation of same or different compounds is possible. Oxidation of benzyl chloride leads to formation of benzyl alcohol, benzaldehyde along with benzoic acid.
