The electrochemical oxidation of resorcinol is experimentally studied on platinum, palladium and glassy carbon (GC) electrodes. The results of an exhaustive electrochemical characterization are presented, and integrated with the outcome of complementary chromatographic analytical techniques: LC-DAD and LC-MS. We demonstrate that upon electrochemical oxidation resorcinol polymerizes following an efficient and facile process, and once the electropolymerization is triggered a polymer film can be easily grown. The latter film features also good adhesion on the electrode surface.
