Abstract

We have developed the "cation pool" method in which carbocations such as alkoxycarbenium ions and N-acyliminium ions are generated and accumulated in conventional reaction media by low temperature electrochemical oxidation. The carbocations thus produced are allowed to react with a variety of nucleophiles. Various organic transformations using the cation pool method, such as reductive radical couplings, cationic carbohydroxylations, three-component couplings, and additions of organic radicals, have also been developed. Combinatorial sequential synthesis using the "cation flow" method, in which carbocations are generated in an electrochemical microflow system, has been achieved as well.
