Abstract

The benzoin condensation of aromatic and heteroaromatic aldehydes, catalyzed by electrochemically generated N-heterocyclic carbenes, has been set up in the absence of organic solvents and bases. a-Hydroxy ketones have been isolated in good to elevated yields, in short reaction times. Aldol products and carbene-aldehyde adducts have been obtained in elevated yields from linear and short branched aldehydes, respectively. A comparison with the use of classical organic solvents has been reported
