Research

The goal of the research is to explore the use of a microflow reactor to construct a sigma bond between two formally electrophilic carbon center via electroreductive cyclization (ERC) and the electrohydro cyclization (EHC).  They provide a metal free, relatively mild condition for the carbon-carbon bond formation with minimal quantity of supporting electrolyte. This project will focus upon electroreductive C-C bond coupling processes utilizing a microflow reactor and a recycling pump.
