A photoredox-neutral Smiles rearrangement of 2-aryloxybenzoic acids

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report on the use of visible light photoredox catalysis for the radical Smiles rearrangement of 2-aryloxybenzoic acids to obtain aryl salicylates. The method is free of noble metals and operationally simple and the reaction can be run under mild batch or flow conditions. Being a redox neutral process, no stoichiometric oxidants or reductants are needed.
