Abstract Mediated electrosynthesis using Ce:H- Ce4+ redox system olfers a clean and facile route for the production ofseveral important aromatic carbonyl products. Use of methane sulphon ic acid medium for the generation of ceric ion has made cerium mediated electrosynthesis practical for the commercial production or aromatic carbonyl products. In this paper, results are presented for the electrochemical generation of Ce(lV) in methane sulphonic acid medium and the oxidation of p.xylene to p-tolualdehyde using dilTerent solvent media. Under optimised conditions, 90�95 % selectivities have been achieved for the synthesis of p-tolualdehyde.
