Photoredox generation of the trifluoromethyl radical from borate complexes via single electron reduction

Author affiliations

Abstract

A method for the generation of the CF3 radical from CF3-substituted borate complexes bearing a pyridine-N-oxide ligand is described. Cleavage of the C–B bond occurs via single electron reduction by a Cu(I) photocatalyst activated by visible light.
