Synthesis of organic compounds of industrial and pharmaceutical interest under electrochemical conditions

Line of research
The research activity focuses on the use of ionic liquids as efficient solvent / support electrolyte systems in electrolysis experiments for the synthesis of compounds with potential industrial and pharmaceutical interest. Furthermore, the cathodic reduction of imidazolium ionic liquids allows the generation of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC), used as organocatalysts to promote a wide range of organic reactions. These electrochemical systems allow an approach to organic synthesis following the principles of sustainable chemistry through the recycling of these systems
