Identifying key intermediates generated in situ from Cu(II) salt–catalyzed C–H functionalization of aromatic amines under illumination

Abstract

Copper compounds involved in photocatalysis have recently spurred considerable interest for their novel transformations. However, mechanistic investigations are still in infancy. We find a new type of reaction, that is, Cu(II) salt-catalyzed C-H functionalization of aromatic amines triggered by visible light irradiation. An array of mechanistic observations… (More)
