Abstract Cyclic voltammetric behaviour of a-(phenylthio)acetamides and a-(phenylthio)acetates were compared in CH3CN tetrabutylammonium perchlorate (TBAP) and CH3CN Et3N 3HF to assess the in�uence of �uoride ion on the oxidative pathway. These studies support the Pummerer mechanistic pathway involving an initial attack at sulfur in selective electro�uorination (SEF). A linear correlation between the peak current values in cyclic voltammetry and overall synthetic yield in preparative electrolysis was obtained suggesting the importance of weak blocking or a reactive adsorption effect on the overall synthetic processes. Other factors in�uencing the adsorption and insulation of electrode surfaces during the SEF are also discussed.
