Abstract

<p>Gluconic acid and sorbitol are obtained simultaneously both with 90% yields by paired electrolysis of glucose, with a Pb sheet cathode and a dimension stable anode (DSA) in a press filtration diaphragm cell. The anolyte is composed from 66.7% glucose and 2% NaBr, and the catholyte from 66.7% glucose and 2.5% Na<sub>2</sub>SO<sub>4</sub>, respectively. The electrolysis was performed at the temperature of 60 C, at the current density of 50 mA cm<sup>-2</sup>, <i>Q<sub>r</sub></i> is 110%. At this optimum conditions the current efficiencies for both gluconic acid and sorbitol are higher than 80%.
