Visible-light-enabled aerobic synthesis of benzoin bis-ether from alkynes and alcohols

Abstract

A new, facile, atom-economical and good regioselective method for the synthesis of benzoin bis-ethers has been developed via directly using readily available alkynes and alcohols as raw material under visible light irradiation. The protocol utilizes commercial Mes-Acr+ ClO4- as an organophotoredox catalyst and air (O2) as green sustainable reagents. A range of benzoin bis-ethers derivatives were easily and efficiently obtained in a one-pot procedure at room temperature, and water is the by-product.
