Conditions for a site-selective ceric ammonium nitrate oxidation have been developed. The reactions proceed nicely on both 1K- and 12K-microelectrode arrays. The procedure for developing the reactions was very simple and demonstrated that the same reagents used for a solution-phase reaction can be used for a related site-selective reaction on a microelectrode array.
