Vanillin was synthesized from isoeugenol through electrochemical method in one compartment cell using platinum electrode. Cyclic voltammetry in 0.1 M TBAP in methanol and acetonitrile indicated the first oxidation potential at +0.21 and +0.16 V (vs. Ag/AgCl), respectively. Isoeugenolis was proposed to undergo the oxidation accompanied by oxidative cleavage of alkene bond into aldehyde. Accordingly, the synthesis of vanillin was conducted using chronoamperometry technique. The electrosynthesis result was analyzed by HPLC and GC/MS. The optimum condition of the oxidation potential, solvent ratio, time of electrolysis and amount of water was investigated.
