Electrosynthesis is a Popular, Environmentally Friendly Substitute for Conventional Organic Methods. It Involves using Charge Transfer to Stimulate Chemical Reactions through the Application of a Potential or Current between Two Electrodes. in Addition to Electrode Materials and the Type of Reactor Employed, the Strategies for Controlling Potential and Current Have an Impact on the Yields, Product Distribution, and Reaction Mechanism. in This Review, Recent Advances Related to Electroanalysis Applied in Electrosynthesis Were Discussed. the First Part of This Study Acts as a Guide that Emphasizes the Foundations of Electrosynthesis. These Essentials Include Instrumentation, Electrode Selection, Cell Design, and Electrosynthesis Methodologies. Then, Advances in Electroanalytical Techniques Applied in Organic, Enzymatic, and Microbial Electrosynthesis Are Illustrated with Specific Cases Studied in Recent Literature. to Conclude, a Discussion of Future Possibilities that Intend to Advance the Academic and Industrial Areas is Presented.
