Abstract

A general and efficient visible-light photoredox-catalysed decarboxylative radical coupling reaction of N-aryl amino acids with aldehydes or ketones for the synthesis of various 1,2-amino alcohols by using water as the solvent at room temperature is described. This protocol is characterised by broad substrate scopes, mild reaction conditions and amenability to gram-scale synthesis, which opens up a simple, mild but effective method to produce 1,2-amino alcohols from readily available starting materials.
