Abstract

"The anodic oxidation of EDTA was studied in acid sulfate solutions on platinized-Pt at 25ºC. Polarization relationships were obtained for the EDTA concentration range 3. 42 x 10⁻⁵ to 3. 42 x 10⁻³ M and pH range 0. 35 to 3. 80. Numerous reaction products were identified that indicated a sequential removal of acetate groups from the EDTA, each by an initial decarboxylation followed by a reverse Schiff-type reaction, that produced formaldehyde and the corresponding amine. A reaction sequence which correlated the experimental data involved Frumkin-type adsorption of the EDTA species through an unionized acetate group followed by a rate-determining electrochemical decarboxylation"--Abstract, page 1.
