Visible-light-promoted iminyl-radical formation from acyl oximes: a unified approach to pyridines, quinolines, and phenanthridines.
A unified strategy involving visible-light-induced iminyl-radical formation has been established for the construction of pyridines, quinolines, and phenanthridines from acyl oximes and was successfully applied to a five-step concise synthesis of benzo[c]phenanthridine alkaloids.
Visible-light-promoted and one-pot synthesis of phenanthridines and quinolines from aldehydes and O-acyl hydroxylamine.
A variety of phenanthridines and quinolines have been prepared assisted by Brønsted acid and photocatalyst under visible light at room temperature with satisfactory yields.
Radical Alkynyltrifluoromethylation of Alkenes Initiated by an Electron Donor-Acceptor Complex.
A variety ofAlkenes are compatible in this protocol including aliphatic alkenes, vinyl ethers, enecarbamates, styrenes, and even acrylates, providing diverse β- trifluoromethyl alkynes in good to excellent yields.
Direct Aromatic C-H Trifluoromethylation via an Electron-Donor-Acceptor Complex.
The radical-based methodology presented here allows to access highly-functionalized trifluoromethyl arenes in up to 81 % chemical yield.
Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary γ-C(sp3)-H Vinylation of Amides via Organic Photoredox-Catalyzed Hydrogen Atom Transfer.
An efficient strategy for primary, secondary and tertiary aliphatic γ-C(sp3)-H vinylation of amides with alkenylboronic acids is reported and regulated by a 1,5-hydrogen atom transfer of an amidyl radical generated in situ.
Asymmetric total syntheses of marine cyclic depsipeptide halipeptins A-D.
The key elements in this synthesis include the elaboration of the polysubstituted decanoic acid parts by two asymmetric aldol reactions, assembly of the N-methyl-delta-hydroxyisoleucine residue by using either aza-Claisen rearrangement or methylation of aspartates as the key steps.
Selective reduction of carboxylic acids to aldehydes with hydrosilane via photoredox catalysis.
The direct reduction of carboxylic acids to aldehydes with hydrosilane was achieved through visible light photoredox catalysis. The combination of both single electron transfer and hydrogen atom
Visible-light-mediated fluoroalkylation of isocyanides with ethyl bromofluoroacetates: unified synthesis of mono- and difluoromethylated phenanthridine derivatives.
A practical and unified strategy has been described for the preparation of mono- and difluoromethylated phenanthridine derivatives using a visible-light-promoted alkylation and decarboxylation
