Industrial scale electrochemical processing of organic chemicals has been practiced for almost 100 years. An estimated 120 different processes have been piloted at various scales and at least 60 are now commercial. The biggest of these is the electrohydrodimerization of acrylonitrile to adiponitrile a key constituent in the production of Nylon.
Other examples of reactions that can be carried out electrochemically include:
- Nitro Reduction
- Coupling Reactions
