Recent Developments in Organocatalyzed Electro-organic Chemistry

This highlight review focuses on the integration of organocatalysis and electrosynthesis. Specifically, we detail recent advances involving the use of organocatalysts to alter substrate redox potentials through the in situ generation of electroactive intermediates. The ability to redirect organocatalyzed pathways toward oxidative fates using electrolysis techniques has enabled highly efficient transformations that would traditionally require stoichiometric sacrificial oxidants.
