Electrochemistry

In the realm of electrochemistry, where innovation meets interdisciplinary collaboration, the echoes of Harmann Kolbe's pioneering work in 1847 resonate in our modern pursuit of sustainable organic synthesis. Over the past two decades, electrochemistry has emerged as a transformative strategy, offering a green alternative for crafting complex organic molecules. The allure of electrochemical transformations lies in their ability to operate under ambient conditions, sidestepping the need for stoichiometric amounts of oxidants and reductants, thereby minimizing waste and environmental impact. Moreover, the inherent diversity of electrochemical reactions unveils a rich arena of reactivity and selectivity, illuminating pathways to overcome the challenges of uphill electron transfers.


In our research group, we harness the electrifying potential of electrochemical processes to revolutionize organic transformation. With a keen focus on distal and asymmetric C-H functionalization, we embark on a journey to unveil novel electrochemical methodologies. Furthermore, our quest extends to the frontier of cross-coupling reactions, where we seek to pioneer innovative methodologies that harness the power of electrochemistry to forge intricate molecular bonds. Through our endeavors, we aim not only to advance the boundaries of organic synthesis but also to pave the way for a greener, more sustainable future in chemistry.
