Reaction Integration Using Electrochemically Generated Cationic Reactive Intermediates
In this presentation we report on time integration of electrochemical oxidation and chemical oxidation based on the “cation pool” method. For example, electrochemically generated carbocations are reacted with dimethylsulfoxide to give the corresponding alkoxysulfonium ions, which are well-known as key intermediates of Swern—Moffatt oxidation. The subsequent treatment with triethylamine gives the corresponding carbonyl compounds. Moreover, the reactions of halogenuim and arylchalcogenium cation pools stabilized by dimethoxysulfoxide with alkenes followed by treatment with triethylamine give a-halo and arylchalcogen-substituted carbonyl compounds, respectively.
