Abstract

Three selective electroorganic reductions have been performed successfully in undivided cells. New process developments include the sacrificial oxidation of acetic acid in the reductive deacetoxylation of a steroid intermediate, and the use of gas diffusion anodes in the reductive carboxylation of chlorobenzene and the reduction of 3-hydroxybenzoic acid.
