Abstract

An acid-catalyzed reaction occuring in the vicinity of the anode surface is one of the characteristic electrochemical reactions which are distinguished from any other homogeneous chemical reactions. Even though a total electrochemical reaction system is kept neutral, it is possible to generate a localized quite strong acidic circumstance distinctively in the vicinity of an anode surface. This characteristic phenomenum has long been known but never been recognized as a useful catalytic tool for organic transformations. This review will shed a light on chemistry of electrogenerated acid (EGA). After a brief explanation of a background of EGA, electrolysis conditions in which EGA is efficiently generated and mechanism of EGA generation are discussed. In the following, recent applications of EGA chemistry to organic synthesis are explained so as to understand a scope and limitation of EGA catalysis.
