Area of Interest: An electro-organic synthesis is one in which two-electrode (or three electrode) electrosynthetic setup (divided or undivided cells) an anode and cathode ( or reference electrode) are immersed into the solution containing the organic substrate(s) and a supporting electrolyte, which is required to increase the conductivity of the solution. Applying a potential difference between the electrodes allows oxidation or reduction reactions to occur, using an external power source.
