We have successfully developed novel electrolytic systems using solid-supported acids and bases. Anodic fluorination of various compounds using KF as a fluorine source and solid-supported acids as a supporting electrolyte was successfully carried out to provide the corresponding fluorinated products in good to excellent yields. On the other hand, anodic methoxylation, anodic acetoxylation, Kolbe electrolysis, and non-Kolbe electrolysis of various compounds using solid-supported bases as a precursor of supporting electrolytes were also conducted to afford the corresponding methoxylated, acetoxylated, Kolbe, and non-Kolbe products in moderate to excellent yields, respectively.
