AbbVie Symposium "Electrochemical Methods for Reductive Cross-Coupling Reactions"

Christo Sevov (The Ohio State University)

The seminar will describe our group's efforts towards the development of scalable, mild, and general electrosynthetic methodologies for cross-coupling reactions. Many of the discussed electrosynthetic methodologies are possible because of a synergy between conventional transition metal catalysts for cross coupling and redox-active mediators developed by the battery community. Electrocatalytic reactions are dramatically improved with the incorporation of co-catalytic quantities of redox mediators that serve to assist in electron transfer, protect catalysts from degradation by over-oxidation/reduction, or promote in the formation of otherwise inaccessible catalytic intermediates. Additionally, a general approach to cross-coupling will be presented that relies on the electrosynthesis of organometallic reagents that undergo radical capture and coupling.
