Performing chemistry experiments is an important way for students to develop practical skills and understand the process of scientific inquiry. Using research results, a comprehensive experiment was designed for the electrochemical synthesis of selenium-containing heterocycles. The experiment teaches students about chemical synthesis, analytical techniques, and structural analysis through the preparation of substrates, electrochemical synthesis and analysis, the spectral characterization of compounds, and crystal culture and analysis, among other processes. Learning about electrochemical synthesis enhances students' awareness of green chemistry and stimulates their interest in the scientific process.

Key words: Electrochemistry, Selenium, Organic synthesis, Green chemistry, Single crystal diffraction
