Abstract

We describe the development of a novel low-cost small-footprint 3D-printed electrosynthesis continuous flow cell system that was designed and adapted to fit a commercially available Electrasyn 2.0. The utility and effectiveness of the combined flow/electrochemistry system over the batch process was demonstrated in the development of an improved and supporting-electrolyte-free version of our anodic methoxymethylation of alcohols.
