Regiospecific alkyl addition of (hetero)arene-fused thiophenes enabled by a visible-light-mediated photocatalytic desulfuration approach

Author affiliations

Abstract

A photoredox-mediated, regiospecific alkyl addition reaction of (hetero)arene-fused thiophenes has been developed, employing bench-stable N-benzoyl alkyl-sulfinamides as the alkyl sources. This protocol offers a unique desulfuration approach to generate alkyl radicals that proceeds via nitrogen-centered radical intermediates.
