Synthetic Organic Electrochemistry Short Course

From Fundamentals and Applications to Process-Scale Up

Date: 22 February - 24 February 2021

Location: Online Event

Tutors: Dr John Studley, Dr David Cantillo

This is a Online short course will be divided up into three sessions on the following dates, The third session is optional – details on each session are below:

Monday, February 22, 2.00 – 4.00pm (UK) | Session 1

Tuesday February 23, 2.00 – 4.00 pm (UK)  |  Session 2

Wednesday February 24, 2.00 – 4.00 (UK) |  Session 3 (optional)

Synthetic organic electrochemistry is becoming increasingly important both in academia and industry as an inherently green and enabling synthetic strategy. Electrochemical methods utilize electricity to transform materials into substances of interest such as medicines or agrochemicals, avoiding the use of stoichiometric amounts of often hazardous or waste-generating oxidants or reductants. In addition to the very compelling economic and environmental advantages, electrochemistry provides the synthetic organic chemist with new vistas on the preparation of complex molecular structures.

One of the main barriers that prevents a wider use of synthetic electrochemistry is a lack of specific training of most organic and process chemists. This course will cover the practical principles of organic electrochemistry, a wide range of synthetic applications and the strategies and experimental setups for the scale-up of electrochemical processes.

This short course is run in conjunction with The University of Graz

This online course will be of interest to organic chemists- both in industry and academia- and anyone interested in finding out more about this emerging new technology
