From Bench to Plant: An Opportunity for Transition Metal Paired Electrocatalysis

Abstract : Electrochemistry and transition metal catalysis are gigantic fields from where several methodologies have found applications in both medicinal and process chemistry. Surprisingly, the transfer from bench to plant is much more difficult for transition metal electrocatalysis. While a plethora of those transformations have emerged in the landscape of medicinal chemistry since more than 50 years, they were not further developed on larger scale. Of course, extra parameters have to be considered when running an electrocatalytic reaction, but they cannot justify the absence of transition metal electrocatalysis examples in process chemistry. This perspective aims to demonstrate that intrinsic characteristics related to the different electrocatalytic modes are responsible for the absence of such processes on large scale. It will also highlight why paired electro-catalyzed reactions have the potential to fill the gap between medicinal and process chemistry. Finally, a strategy to develop unprecedented and process oriented paired electro-catalyzed methods will be disclosed, and hopefully will motivate electropractitioners to study challenging and applicable transformations.
