A transition-metal-free and chemical oxidant-free method was developed for the uniform synthesis of 4-arylselanylanilines and 4-alkylselanylanilines through electrolytic selenylation of N-unprotected anilines with diorganyl diselenides under mild conditions in an undivided cell. The present approach had good functional group compatibility, which made it to be a green and practical method to synthesize 4-(organylselanyl)anilines.

Key words: N-unprotected anilines, diorganyl diselenides, electrochemical synthesis, mild conditions, green chemistry
