dc.descriptionDimethoxycurcumin (DMC) ((1E,6E)-1-(3,4-dimethoxycyclohexyl)-7-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl) hepta-1,6- diene-3,5-dione) is a natural polyphenolic compound that appears together with curcumin in turmeric. Both molecules have wide range biological activities as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic agent. To evaluate the oxidation process and kinetics for DMC, the rate constant, electron transfer and diffusion coefficients for the electrochemical oxidation were determined. Therefore, its electrochemical behavior over a platinum electrode in anhydrous media was investigated. Furthermore, DFT calculations were performed to give a rational explanation to the obtained results. All the results support the fact that the central [sbnd]CH2[sbnd] group is the most reactive against an oxidation process. © 2017
