Decarboxylative reduction of free aliphatic carboxylic acids by photogenerated cation radical

Author affiliations

Abstract

The decarboxylation of free carboxylic acids was effected by a photogenerated cation radical of phenanthrene to yield the reduction product in the presence of a thiol, which provides an alternative method to the Barton decarboxylation procedure for aliphatic acids such as N-Boc amino acids.
