Abstract

We have developed a novel electrolytic system based on the anion exchange reaction between KCl and Amberlyst A26. It was demonstrated by preparative electrolysis experiments as well as cyclic voltammetry that the anion exchange reaction offers a unique electrolytic system for electroreduction of organic compounds. On the basis of the electrolytic system, electroreduction of aromatic carbonyl compounds was successfully achieved by using an undivided cell to provide the corresponding coupling products as pinacols in good to high yields with high diastereoselectivity.
