Since the 21st century, the electrochemical evolution has been gaining traction in the chemistry/chemical engineering field. For organic electrochemical synthesis, many important advantages have been demonstrated, including exquisite reaction control and avoidance of toxic oxidants and reductants. In accordance with the developing and reforming pathway in modern times, our group presents an independently researched and developed electrochemical reactor. The highly modular construction possesses technological advances which allows to energize the organic electrochemical field. Profiting from the modularized components, it provides an enhanced reproducibility and scalability. Currently, our group is applying this novel reactor design in a variety of newly developed electrochemical transformations.
