Archived: It’s Alive! Synthetic Organic Electrochemistry – Life at the Electrode
Date: 25 February 2020
Synthetic electrochemistry, though not a new technology, has been shocked back to life in the fast lane of sustainable synthetic organic chemistry. Application of electrochemical methods in organic synthesis- replacement of stochiometric chemical redox based systems with electricity- has the potential to be transformative in both academia and industry. In addition to clear economic and ecological advantages, inherent tunability imparts high selectivity, functional group resilience and mild, safe, operating conditions. The commercial availability of bench-top screening platforms has enabled rapid laboratory-scale development of electrochemical methods and their subsequent implementation in an industrial setting.
This webinar was presented by Dr John Studley, Scientific Update. It covered an introduction to the theory and application of synthetic organic electrochemistry, highlighting recent examples, case studies, and potential future industrial utility.
