About the Project
Electrosynthesis has been widely studied within the electrochemical community, but represents an underused tool, with great potential for the construction of chemical bonds. This presents electrosynthesis as a potential step changing technology, particularly since the use of electrons can be directly linked to many aspects associated with green chemistry.
The formation of a thermodynamically and kinetically stable C-C bond is arguably the most desirable application for carbon dioxide chemistry, since many feedstocks could be produced. Coupled with the under use of electrosynthetic protocols, attractive and straightforward procedures for the carboxylation of carbon nucleophiles with CO2 as the electrophile remain largely underdeveloped.
