In this work, we describe Nano-Ag-Nafion coated pt electrode for oxidation of volatile organic compound (VOC), here acetaldehyde. Electrochemically synthesized Nano-Ag-Nafion film on Pt was analyzed by electrochemically in various electrolyte solutions like nitric acid, sulfuric acid, potassium nitrate, and potassium hydroxide for its stability. High stability of Nano-Ag-Nafion film appeared in potassium hydroxide medium among electrolyte solutions studied. Electrocatalysis of acetaldehyde was occurred only in acid and neutral medium. A catalytic oxidative peak during cathodic voltammetric reduction scan was observed at 1.75 V, which, unusual redox behavior, follows EC' reaction path way between electrogenerated Ag(II) and acetaldehyde. For Nano-Ag potential applicability, a calibration plot was drawn from various concentration range of acetaldehyde to check the maximum concentration level of acetaldehyde degradation in air.
