The selective electro-oxidation of D-glucose represents a promising way for the synthesis of many platform molecules, currently produced from non-renewable fossil fuels. Electrocatalysis is gaining considerable interest as an alternative to the thermochemical process, since it allows the process to be sustainable by operating at room temperature and pressure as well as using green solvents and electricity produced from renewable sources. In this work, the activity of three electrocatalysts, based on open cell Ni foams, towards the electrochemical oxidation of glucose to gluconic acid and glucaric acid was initially compared: a Ni bare foam, and Ni foams calcined at 500 °C for one hour and electrodeposited with Ni NP nanoparticles. The calcined foam turned out to be the most efficient. Then, the performance of this Ni calcined electrocatalyst was studied varying the reaction conditions, such as the potential applied (from 0,5V to 1,0V vs SCE), D-glucose concentration (0,01M, 0,05M and 0,10M) and NaOH concentration (0,10M and 1,0M). The activity of the electrocatalysts was evaluated in terms of glucose conversion, gluconic and gluconic acid selectivity and faradic efficiency. The best results were obtained over a Ni calcined foam with a 0,05M solution of D-glucose and 0,10M of NaOH at a 0,80V vs SCE potential.
