Abstract

Friedel-Crafts acylation is carried out with several aromatic substrates in the presence of an electrochemically active aluminium anode to minimize the inorganic reagents. Only a catalytic amount of AlCl3 (5 mol %) is required to enable the anodic polarization of the aluminium electrode to promote continuous acylation. This process typically gave products in good yields (70-96%). (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
