Organic electrochemistry has emerged as an enabling and sustainable technology in modern organic synthesis. Despite the recent renaissance of electrosynthesis, the broad adoption of electrochemistry in the synthetic community, and especially in industrial settings, has been hindered by the lack of general, standardized platforms for high-throughput experimentation (HTE). Herein, we disclose the design of the HTeChem, a high-throughput microscale electrochemical reactor that is compatible with existing HTE infrastructure and enables the rapid evaluation of a broad array of electrochemical reaction parameters. Utilizing the HTeChem to accelerate reaction optimization, reaction discovery, and chemical library synthesis is illustrated using a suite of oxidative and reductive transformations under constant current, constant voltage, and electrophotochemical conditions.
