Transition metal-free, visible-light mediated synthesis of 1,10-phenanthroline derived ligand systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

A broad range of 1,10-phenanthroline substrates was efficiently C–H functionalised, providing rapid, gram-scale access to substituted heteroaromatic cores of broad utility. Furthermore, this C–H functionalisation pathway was extended to the synthesis of previously inaccessible, ultra-soluble, 2,9-bis-triazinyl-1,10-phenanthroline (BTPhen) ligands for advanced nuclear fuel cycles.
