Electrochemistry and electrosynthetic methods are a part of the repertoire of the organic synthesis toolbox. In general, only electrons are employed as reagents or the reagents are electrochemically regenerated. Consequently, waste can be avoided, and limited resources can be used in a careful and economic manner. Because alternative reaction pathways are employed by electrosynthetic methods, scarce and toxic elements can be replaced or are not required at all. When changing feed stocks and natural resources begin to play a more crucial role, electrosynthetic methodologies will not only be of ecological interest but also of economic significance. The contributions within this Thematic Series demonstrate the broad use of electrosynthesis and represent a snapshot of this current and vividly developing field.
