Photochemical transformations of pyridinium salts: mechanistic studies and applications in synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

The discovery, understanding and synthetic exploitation of the photochemical transformation of pyridinium salts are described. The investigations surrounding the remarkable transformation of pyridinium salts into a host of structurally complex motifs have helped extend the comprehension of aromatic and heteroaromatic photochemistry. The synthetic community has, in recent years, recognised the potential inherent in these compounds and has since exploited the irradiation of variously substituted pyridinium salts as key steps in the preparation of advanced intermediates in numerous synthetic programmes.
