Combining visible light catalysis and transfer hydrogenation for in situ efficient and selective semihydrogenation of alkynes under ambient conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

By combining visible light catalysis and transfer hydrogenation, we are able to convert a series of alkynes to their corresponding alkenes in high chemical yields. Then the visible light catalytic transfer hydrogenation reaction can couple photoisomerization to produce E-alkenes or Z-alkenes exclusively depending on the aryl or alkyl substituted alkynes.
