Abstract

A series of electrochemical transformations have been accomplished using a 6-volt lantern battery as a power supply. The reactions included both intramolecular anodic olefin coupling reactions and an anodic amide oxidation. In all cases, the reactions afforded preparatively useful amounts of product and demonstrated that electrochemical synthetic methods can be readily attempted without the need for specialized equipment.
