Photo-induced copper-catalyzed C–H chalcogenation of azoles at room temperature

Author affiliations

Abstract

Inexpensive copper catalysts enabled direct C–H chalcogenations at ambient temperature by means of photo-induced catalysis. The expedient copper catalysis set the stage for C–S and C–Se bond formation from readily accessible non-volatile elemental chalcogens. The photo-assisted copper catalysis manifold proved suitable for a wide range of substrates with good functional group tolerance and exhibited high catalytic efficacy even at a reaction temperature of 25 °C.
