An electrochemical synthesis of tetrasubstituted hydrazines through dehydrogenative dimerization of secondary amines has been developed. The reactions are conducted in a simple undivided cell with constant current. The use of electricity to promote the reactions obviates the need for transition metal catalysts and oxidizing reagents, providing an efficient and sustainable access to tetrasubstituted hydrazines with diverse electronic properties.

Key words: organic electrosynthesis, anodic oxidation, dehydrogenative coupling, tetrasubstituted hydrazines
