One-pot electrochemical synthesis of two medically targeted well-known compounds is presented. 2-phenylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridine and 2-(4-flurobenzylidene)malononitrile were prepared using previously used starting materials. The reaction consists of electrochemical methods without adding further reagent which delivers the products with about 82-90% of yield at 5.0V which leads to a different approach to synthesize important organic moieties with efficient pathways.
