Direct experimental evidence for an enamine radical cation in SOMO catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

SOMO catalysis has lately obtained large interest as a new and powerful version of enantioselective organocatalysis which includes radical steps initiated by a one-electron oxidation. The intermediate enamine radical cation has been postulated, but has not been observed directly so far. This communication now reports the direct detection of this key intermediate.
