The electrooxidation of alcohols in an aqueous disperse system with N-oxyl-immobilized poly(p-phenylene benzobisthiazole) network polymer particles (PBZTNT-N-Oxyl) as a disperse phase was performed successfully in a simple beaker-type undivided cell under a constant current condition to afford the corresponding ketones, aldehydes, and/or carboxylic acid in moderate to good yields. Recycle use of both the PBZTNT-N-Oxyl particles and the aqueous media could be achieved successfully by immobilization of additional N-oxyl moiety on the polymer particles in an appropriate interval. Notably, the shape and the particle size of PBZTNT-N-Oxyl were not appreciably changed even after 60 times recycle use.
