Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Electrochemistry provides an alternative pathway to handle redox organic reactions, especially for certain chemical process that can be only achieved through electrochemical process. Herein, there research projects are introduced to enrich the whole synthetic community, including an anodic oxidative cyclization studies to develop methodology on heterocyclic ring skeleton constructions, an electroreduction pathway exploration to more effectively obtain hydrazine from nitroso compounds, as well as a study in paired electrolysis process on which both anode and cathode are simultaneously employed to maximize overall atom and energy efficiency. Future directions on these projects are also demonstrated at the end of each chapters..
