A photoredox catalyzed radical–radical coupling reaction: facile access to multi-substituted nitrogen heterocycles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Visible light induced photoredox catalysis is an efficient method for radical activation. Herein, we report the photoredox catalysis involving an intramolecular radical–radical coupling reaction that proceeds through a biradical intermediate. This protocol represents a new synthetic route to construct multi-substituted N-heterocycles. Four, five and six-membered N-heterocyclic structures with a quaternary carbon center are accessible under mild conditions.
