Abstract

Benzyl alcohol is one of the important compounds that are very much useful in industrial chemistry. It is used as a local anesthetic and antiseptic in the field medicine. The literature on various chemical reactions of benzyl alcohol is scattered. Only a few works have been done on electrochemical studies of benzyl alcohol. This work is concentrated on the cyclic voltammetric studies of benzyl alcohol. Cyclic voltammograms were recorded by varying pH, working electrode and scan rate. Multiple scan studies have also been done. The system showed variations in the working potentials (anodic peak voltage) while the reaction conditions such as pH, working electrode, were changed. These studies also revealed that the ethoxylation of bezyl alcohol is diffusion controlled at all fore said conditions. It is also found out that benzyl alcohol is not forming polymers on the working electrode.
