Selective difluoroalkylation of alkenes by using visible light photoredox catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A visible light-induced process for selective difluoroalkylation of unactivated alkenes has been developed. The choice of base is crucial for governing the chemoselectivity of the process to produce difluoroalkylated alkanes and alkenes.
