Applications of Electrochemistry in Synthesis
Electrosynthesis represents an increasingly viable platform for molecular synthesis, which is currently undergoing a remarkable renaissance. The use of electricity can, for instance, avoid chemical redox reagents as well as the generation of byproducts derived thereof, setting the stage for improved resource economy. This volume is the defining reference work for this rapidly evolving research arena. It features a collection of the most practical and robust methods of organic electrosynthesis. It introduces the key concepts of electrochemistry and provides all relevant laboratory set-ups, enabling newcomers to the field the effective application of these powerful new tools to molecular syntheses. Innovative strategies that successfully realize topical challenging transformations by the art of electrosynthesis are presented. Pioneers and leaders in the field discuss both the practical and conceptual aspects of this rapidly evolving research field.
