Conjugate addition from the excited state

Author affiliations


Conjugate addition occurs efficiently from excited hydrazide based acrylanilides under both UV and metal free visible light irradiations. The reaction proceeds via an excited state encounter complex that bifurcates either via an electron or energy transfer pathway. The generality of excited state conjugate addition is demonstrated using chloromethylation and by thiol addition.
