About this book


The volume Electrochemistry VI of Topics in Current Chemistry is subtitled Electroorganic Synthesis: Bond Formations at the Anode and Cathode. It highlights both the current value and the large potential of organic electrochemistry for the selective formation of carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds and for the generation of complex organic molecules using electrochemical key steps. The contents range from the synthesis of natural products to the preparation of pharmaceuticals, from the generation of unsymmetrical biaryls to the construction of peptide mimetics. The pros and cons of the electroorganic procedure as compared to alternative methods are discussed and mechanistic considerations are included. Experts in their fields present recent results.
