An introduction to electrochemical methods and their use in the synthetic laboratory. Covers the major organic electrochemical pathways of synthetic interest, while de-emphasizing the mechanistic literature. For each functional group covered, the essential features of its electrochemical behavior are outlined, including the presumed intermediates. This Second Edition has been revised, covering the literature through early 1988, and presents useful electrochemical reactions superior to, and, in some cases, without counterparts in, conventional chemical methods.
Electrochemical Principles.

Techniques for Investigation of Electrode Reactions.

Manipulation of Experimental Parameters.

Cleavage of Single Bonds.

Reduction of Multiple Bonds.

Electrochemical Reduction of Conjugated Systems.

Oxidation Processes.

Indirect Electrolysis: Electrocatalysis and ElectrogeneratedReagents.

Demystifying Electrochemistry: Equipment and Experiments.
