About my thesis - Multiphase electrosynthesis
Electrosynthesis is an important tool as it enables to minimize waste production and direct use of renewable energy sources to allow for new/efficient transformations. Therefore, it is crucial to develop electrochemical methodologies that are easily scalable, robust and are using standardized equipment to maximize reproducibility.
This project is therefore focused on combining electrochemistry and continuous microflow conditions to forge new compounds.
Combining the two techniques promotes a better reactivity as it significantly reduces the inter-electrode gap, allows for better mass/heat transfer (crucial in multiphasic systems) and significantly eases the scalability compared to batch methodologies. Moreover, using available/renewable feedstocks as well as green solvents (e.g water) will be core to this research in order to deliver sustainable and industrially viable synthetic pathways.
