Photoredox Alkylarylation of Styrenes with Alkyl N‑Hydroxyphth-alimide Esters and Arenes involving C-H Functionalization

Abstract

In(OTf)3-promoted three-component photoredox alkylarylation of styrenes with alkyl NHP esters and arenes to access alkylated arene derivatives through C-C bond cleavage and C-H functionalization is reported. By utilizing the visible light photoredox catalysis, alkyl N‑hydroxyphthalimide esters serve as alkyl carbon-centered radicals and a wide range of arenes (e.g., indoles, pyrrole, electron-rich arenes) as nucleophiles to enable introduction of various alkyl groups and aryl groups across the C=C bonds with excellent selectivity and functional group tolerance.
