Electrosynthesis gives organic chemists more power
When it comes to electrochemistry, the first thing that pops into mind probably isn’t C–H activation or arene cross-coupling reactions. You might think of batteries and solar cells, or industrial processes such as electroplating and the electrolytic production of metals such as aluminum. Others might think of cyclic voltammetry, a technique used to study the chemical properties of compounds and reaction mechanisms.
But for plain old organic chemistry, like those arene cross-couplings, electrochemistry isn’t common . . .
