The oxidation of the two catechol rings A and B in the chemical structure of hematoxylin in aqueous solution has been studied theoretically in order to identify the mechanism of oxidation. In a recent experimental study, the oxidation mechanism of hematoxylin was designated an ErCiEr process in which an irreversible chemical reaction (Ci) followed the reversible chemical electrochemical oxidation (Er) of the catechol unit connected to the six-membered ring of the molecule (ring A). The...[Show more]
