Paired Electrosynthetic Upgrading of Organic Molecules

Project: Academy of Finland project

Project Details


This project aims for elevating electroorganic synthesis, the 21st century’s technique for sustainable chemical manufacturing, to a new level by developing several both atom and energy-efficient paired electrosynthethic processes. It is one of the most important and urgent approaches that the chemical sciences can offer to society to meet the challenge of transitioning towards a more ecological circular economy and help in decarbonizing the chemical industry. All the syntheses have been designed so that quick adaptation to the chemical industry is possible. For example, the project concentrates on products that can replace the current fossil feedstocks directly, uses non-edible starting materials to avoid ethical issues, and uses only the most economic and scalable electrolysis methods for maximum impact and applicability.
