Electrochemical Reactions and Mechanisms in Organic Chemistry (#104)

Organic electrochemistry has become recognized as a promising green methodology for organic chemistry and for industrial processes. Using electric current as reagent, it can be used to replace toxic or dangerous oxidizing or reducing reagents. Moreover, the total energy consumption can be reduced and unstable and hazardous reagents can be generated in situ. On of the most important advantages is the very wide range of oxidation and reduction reactions. Furthermore, it can realize, for example, elimination or minimization of polluting byproducts requiring disposal process simplification, use of readily available starting materials, the possibility of reaching very high levels of product purity and selectivity. The symposium is held for this field including synthetic organic electrochemistry, organic electron-transfer chemistry, electrochemistry of organics and organometallic compounds, carbon based polymers and biomass, whether fundamental or applied, and including but not limited to synthesis, mechanistic studies, engineering of processes, electro-catalysis, devices such as sensors, pollution control, and separation/recovery.
