Electrochemistry of Organic Compounds is available to download free in pdf / epub format.
Organic electrochemistry is the use of electrical current through a reaction to activate organic molecules by means of the addition or removal of electrons. It possesses a number of advantages such as simplicity of reaction and availability of synthetic materials. The former controls electron energy directly via over potential, and reagents only include electrons and protons. Analytical method is a practical tool to predict reactivity and applicable in metal mediated reactions. To pay sufficient attention for organic electrochemistry, basics and applications of organic electrochemistry will be discussed in this chapter. To introduce organic electrochemistry, the historical developments and pioneers of organic electrochemistry were listed. In conclusion, more attention was attracted to organic electrochemistry from industry and research centers because electrochemical processes can reduce pollutions and make an eco-friendly environment.
