The indirect electrooxidation of 4-picoline and its N-oxide with in situ electrogenerated Co(III) acetate has been studied. Pyridine-4-aldehyde diacetate was obtained in good ield (45 - 68%), if the electrolysis was performed in acetic anhdride at 20 °C in an undivided cell under controlled current conditions.
