Visible-light-mediated aerobic selenation of (hetero)arenes with diselenides

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first visible-light driven aerobic oxidation for the direct selenation of (hetero)arenes has been developed at room temperature, providing an eco-friendly, atom-economical protocol to prepare unsymmetrical selenides from easily accessible diselenides. The reaction is scalable and tolerates a wide spectrum of functional groups to deliver products in very high yields.
