About the Course

This short course serves to bridge the gap between an understanding of organic chemistry and an understanding of electrochemistry by using key terminology familiar to organic chemists to teach and demonstrate the fundamentals of electrochemistry. Case studies that span the scope of electrochemistry’s capabilities are used to illustrate fundamental principles and practical knowledge needed to discover, optimize, and scale electrochemical transformations.

What You Will Learn

  • Describe the uses of electrochemistry and common misconceptions relating to the field.  
  • Identify basic principles of electrochemistry and how they can be related to organic chemistry. 
  • Summarize considerations for moving from small-scale reaction discovery to large-scale preparative electrochemistry on the multigram to kilogram scale. 

Who Should Attend

This course is ideal for

  • Undergrad chem majors working in a research lab 
  • Grad students and postdocs in organic, inorganic, medicinal chemistry programs 
  • Faculty focusing on synthetic chemistry or methodology 
  • Researchers in industry
