Green Cross-Couplings Via Electrosynthesis
By using organic electrosynthesis, a research team in Germany has developed a one-step protocol for cross-coupling phenols to make nonsymmetrical biaryl diols, which are useful in natural product synthesis, in materials science, and as catalyst ligands (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2014, DOI: 10.1002/anie.201400627). In the green method, the team led by Siegfried R. Waldvogel of Johannes Gutenberg University, and including researchers at specialty chemical . . .
