Synthetic Organic Electrochemistry: Basic Concepts and Scale-up

Date: 16 September 2020

Time: 15:00 (BST), 16.00 (CEST), 10.00 (EDT), 7.00 (PDT)

Synthetic organic electrochemical methods utilize electricity to transform materials into substances of interest such as medicines or agrochemicals. Since these chemical reactions are driven by contact of the reaction mixture with electrodes and the electrical energy provided by a power supply, the use of large amounts of other reagents can be avoided. Electrochemical synthesis has therefore the potential to reduce waste generation and cost typically associated with chemical production. Despite the great potential of synthetic electrochemistry, it is rarely adopted by organic chemists. This is in part due to the lack of specific training.

This webinar will provide an overview on the fundamentals of organic electrochemistry, details in basic setups, scale-up strategies and a selection of examples of industrial importance:

  • Fundamentals of organic electrochemistry
  • Basic equipment and materials for lab scale experimentation
  • Scale-up strategies using flow cells
  • Relevant examples including industrial implementation

This webinar will be presented by Professor David Cantillo, Area Leader at the Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering Gmbh (RCPE) at The University of Graz. It will take place at the following time:

15.00   BST (UK, Lisbon)
16.00   CEST (Paris, Madrid, Frankfurt etc)
10.00   EDT (New York, Boston)
7.00     PDT (San Francisco, LA)
