The transfer of the alpha-hydroxy-carboxylates of glycolic, lactic, mandelic and gluconic acid from the aqueous electrolyte phase into an organic 4-(3-phenyl-propyl)-pyridine (PPP) phase is studied at a triple-phase boundary electrode system. The tetraphenylporphyrinato complex MnTPP dissolved in PPP is employed to drive the anion transfer reaction and naphthalene-2-boronic acid (NBA) is employed as a facilitator. In the absence of a facilitator, the ability of alpha-hydroxy-carboxylates to transfer into the organic phase improves, consistent with hydrophobicity considerations giving relative transfer potentials (for aqueous 0.1 M solution) of gluconate>glycolate>lactate>mandelate. In the presence of NBA, a shift of the reversible transfer potential to more negative values is indicating fast reversible binding (the mechanism for the electrode process is EICrev) and the binding constants are determined as K-glycolate=2 M-1, K-mandelate=60 M-1, K-lactate=130 M-1 and K-gluconate=2,000 M-1. The surprisingly strong interaction for gluconate is rationalised based on secondary interactions between the gluconate anion and NBA.
