Metal-free radical trifluoromethylation of β-nitroalkenes through visible-light photoredox catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A catalytic method for functional group interconversion is immensely important in modern sciences. Here, we report an efficient catalytic conversion of nitroalkenes to highly stereoselective 1-trifluoromethylalkenes at room temperature. This unprecedented metal-free photocatalytic strategy is simple and operates under visible-light irradiation using the commercially available CF3 source.
