CHAMPO, a new aminoxyl radical catalyst, enables an electrochemical diazidation of a broad range of alkenes in good yields. Mediated by an anodically generated charge-transfer complex in the form of CHAMPO-N3, radical diazidation was achieved without the need for a transition metal catalyst or a chemical oxidant.
