      The simplicity of preparation \(SiO_2\) matrices, using the sol-gel method, as well as the relative inertness and stability of the matrices, have promoted their use in a wide range of processes. It was decided to check whether sol-gel matrices in which a redox agent is entrapped, can be used as an electro-catalyst. Methyl amines such as \((CH_{3})_{n}NH_{3-n}\), are formed as waste in dyestuff, agriculture, and catalysis industries. Therefore, their treatment has environmental importance. In this study Ni(III)Cyclam was chosen as an electro-catalyst for methyl amines treatment. Preliminary results indicate that such electro-catalytic processes based on sol-gel electrodes can be developed.
