Abstract

Electrochemical methods of preparing inorganic chemical products are well known, and the reactions taking place at anode and cathode are well understood. In the organic sphere an increasing interest is developing in electrolytic methods of preparation, but the processes are neither so widely used as yet, nor are the principles so well clarified. Dr. Allen, who is Director of the Physical Research Laboratories of CIBA, has devoted much energy and enthusiasm to studies in organic electrochemistry and he and his colleagues have devised a number of preparative methods for pharmaceutical products or intermediates based upon anodic oxidation and allied electrolytic processes. In this article he reviews the mechanism of these reactions and outlines some of the important syntheses capable of being effected with the aid of platinum anodes.
