Abstract

A variety of paired electrosyntheses of organic compounds are generally classified into some reaction types and are reviewed with illustrations for typical examples. The following previous and present studies made by the authors and co-workers are also introduced in detail from a practical aspect : that is, paired electmsyntheses of (a) gluconic acid and sorbitol from glucose, (b) methyl ethyl ketone from 2, 3-butanedio1, (c) sulfones, nitrones and aminoiminomethanesulfonic acids from sulfides, N-hydroxylamines and thioureas, respectively, (d) optically active alcohols from racemic ones (optical resolution) and (e) polysilanes from dichlorosilanes (sacrificial anode).
