Abstract

original image

Electrochemical synthesis of EtMgBr in ionic-liquid media is demonstrated. A linear dependence of product concentration on total charge passage is also confirmed. This process could be used in many applications ranging from an industrial bulk GR synthesis in a controlled flowing framework or electrolyte synthesis for magnesium batteries before and even during discharge.
