Carbon-hydrogen bonds are the most extensive and basic chemical bonds existed in organic compounds. Electrochemical functionalization and direct conversion of aromatic C—H bonds is a green, sustainable, and atomically economical transformation pathway, which avoids the pre-functionalization of reactants. The anodic electrooxidation of aromatics allows the formation of C—X (X=C, N, O, S) bonds and the preparation of fused aromatic rings without the use of oxidants. Certain C—H activation reactions with chemoselectivity and regioselectivity can also be achieved by the optimization of electrode materials, electrolytes, and solvents. Vourious reactions focusing on the electrochemical functionalizations of C—H bonds in aromatic compounds are mainly reviewed.

Key words: electrochemical synthesis, aromatics, C—H bond functionalization, fused aromatic compounds
