We have successfully developed a novel mixed-Kolbe electrolysis system using solid-supported bases. Mixed-Kolbe electrolysis of carboxylic acids using solid-supported bases was carried out to provide the corresponding mixed-Kolbe products in moderate to good yields. In this system, solid-supported bases were recyclable even under high current density.
