Seminar of Prof. Kevin Lam (University of Greenwich, UK), entitled :

« Your Chemistry has got Potential: Highly reactive intermediates without the “bang” ».


Thursday February 16th at 13 :45 pm

Amphi Moissan (ENSCP)


This seminar is included in the lectures for the ICI Master program; please find the abstract here :

Synthetic organic electrochemistry takes its roots in Faraday and Kolbe’s classic works on the electrolysis of aliphatic carboxylic acids. Although a plethora of transformations has been developed ever since, and many of them were successfully used in several industrial processes, the potential of preparative organic electrochemistry remains underestimated.However, the growing impetus to look for greener and more cost-effective alternatives to traditional synthetic methodologies recently led to the development of novel electrosynthetic methods.
This presentation will disclose new, safe, green, affordable, and efficient ways to generate highly reactive organic intermediates, such as iso(thio)cyanates, isocyanides, orthoesters or even diazo compounds! We will also discuss their scale-up by using flow electrosynthesis.
