Electrochemical Reactions as an Efficient Methodology for the Synthesis of Organic Compounds

[ Vol. 1 , Issue. 3 ]

Author(s):

Mitsuhiro Okimoto and Yukio Takahashi   Pages 233 - 251 ( 19 )

Abstract:


The syntheses of a variety of organic compounds, with a particular emphasis on nitrogen-containing substrates, with the use of simple electrochemical methods are illustrated. Electrochemical methods allow for the formation of useful and / or novel organic compounds under mild conditions, and involving electrons transfer without the use of any oxidizing or reducing reagents.

Keywords:
