Probing and manipulating chemical reactions at molecular scale provides unprecedented opportunities for mechanistic study that is a fundamental pillar in the development of organic chemistry. In this talk, I will present our recent studies of utilizing single molecule electrochemistry in mediating in situ chemical reactions. I will first show you an unanticipated mode of Au−N bonding created by electrochemical oxidation of aromatic amines. Then I will talk about in situ synthesis of a series of azo compounds from aniline derivatives in molecular scale. These results suggest that electrochemistry is an unparalleled methodology for interrogating synthetic chemistry in order to reveal the reaction mechanisms and design new reaction pathways.
