Abstract: Electrosynthesis can be carried out in emulsions formed in situ via sonication of otherwise immiscible liquid/liquid systems. The basic physical principles underlying these experiments are introduced and illustrated via three examples: the electroreduction of liquid olefins, the Kolbe electrooxidation, and the electrogeneration of leuco-methylene green.
