Visible light-induced intramolecular cyclization reactions of diamines: a new strategy to construct tetrahydroimidazoles

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new and efficient synthesis of highly substituted tetrahydroimidazole derivatives by means of visible light-induced intramolecular cyclization reactions has been described. This photoredox catalytic reaction exhibited high diastereoselectivity and afforded the desired products in good yields.
