The organic electrolytic synthesis anode is used to make some organic substances, such as succinic acid (IUPAC systematic name: butanedioic acid) and tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH or TMAOH).
Electrosynthesis of Succinic Acid
During production, succinic acid is generated at the cathode, while oxygen evolution reaction takes place at the anode. Now, lead alloy anode is usually used, but the Ti-IrO2-Ta2O5 dimensionally stable anode would be the most stable anode for this process.
Electrosynthesis of Tetramethylammonium Hydroxide
The tetramethylammonium hydroxide is fabricated by electrolyzing tetramethylammonium hydrogen carbonate. During electrolysis, CO2 and O2 are liberated on the anode surface, and the temperature of electrolyte solution is 60℃ while the anodic current density is 1000-1200A/m2. In addition, the service life is over one year.
