Electro-organic Synthesis – A 21st Century Technique
The fierce limitation of fossil fuels and finite ressources influence the scientific community reconsidering chemical synthesis and establishing sustainable techniques. Several auspicious methods have emerged whereas electro-organic conversions attract particular attention from the international academia and industry as environmentally begnin and cost-effective method. An easy application, precise control, and safe conversion of substrates with intermediates only accessible by this way reveal novel pathways in synthetic organic chemistry. The popularity of electricity as reagent is accompanied by the feasible conversion of bio-based feetstocks to limit the carbon footprint. Several milestones have been achieved in electro-organic conversions at flourishing frequency which released various perspectives for forthcoming procesess.
