The development of a general catalyst system for the direct anti-Markovnikov hydrofunctionalization of alkenes is presented. A unique catalyst system comprised of an acridinium photooxidant and a hydrogen atom transfer reagent allows for a range of alkene anti-Markovnikov hydrofunctionalization reactions including hydroalkoxylation, hydroamination, and hydroacetoxylation.
