The selective electrochemical oxidation of heteroatom compounds having two different types of electroauxiliaries, i.e. silicon and tin on the same α carbon has been achieved. The C-Sn bond was cleaved selectively and a nucleophile was introduced. The second oxidation of the compound thus obtained gave rise to the cleavage of the C-Si bond and the introduction of a second nucleophile. The present study indicates the feasibility of the redox potential based strategies using electroauxiliaries.
