Electron transfer is one of the most typical driving factors for organic reaction, and organic electrosynthesis serves as a straightforward and powerful method for organic electron transfer processes. On the other hand, microreactor technology for organic synthesis has been significantly investigated for the past two decades, however, the integrated use of microreactor technology with organic electrosynthesis has been quite limited so far. We report here that the integrated use of microreactor technology with organic electrosynthesis which offers one of the most sophisticated processes in organic chemistry. In particular, (a) Organic electrosynthetic processes without using intentionally added supporting electrolyte, (b) Organic electrosynthetic processes utilizing liquid-liquid parallel laminar flow, (c) Novel paired electrolytic processes, and (d) Multi-step reaction systems via electrogenerated species, have been described.
