Synthetic organic electrochemistry takes its roots in Faraday and Kolbe’s classic works on the electrolysis of aliphatic carboxylic acids. Although a plethora of transformations has been developed ever since and many of them were successfully used in several industrial processes, the potential of preparative organic electrochemistry remains underestimated. However, the growing impetus to look for greener and more cost-effective alternatives to traditional synthetic methodologies recently led to the development of novel electrosynthetic methods.
This presentation will disclose new, safe, green, affordable, and efficient ways to generate highly reactive organic intermediates relevant to medicinal chemistry. We will also discuss their scale up by using flow electrosynthesis.
