The syntheses of a variety of organic compounds, with a particular emphasis on nitrogen-containing substrates, with the use of simple electrochemical methods are illustrated. Electrochemical methods allow for the formation of useful and / or novel organic compounds under mild conditions, and involving electrons transfer without the use of any oxidizing or reducing reagents.

Keywords: electrolysis, oxidation, reduction, hydrazone, enamine, cyanation, hydrogenation, cyclization
