Metal-free Photocatalytic Thiol-Ene/Thiol-Yne Reactions


The organic photocatalyst (9-mesityl-10-methylacridinum tetrafluoroborate) in presence of visible light is used to initiate thiol-ene and thiol-yne reactions. The thiyl radicals are generated upon quenching of photoexcited catalyst with a range of thiols. The highlighted mild nature of reaction conditions allows a broad substrate scope of the reactants. Relying on this efficient metal-free condition, both thiol-ene and thiol-yne reactions between carbohydrates and peptides could be realized in excellent yields.
